What is Club J?

Club J, the Mandel JCC Afterschool Program, offers your child a variety of social, recreational, cultural and fun activities in a safe and nurturing environment. Club J provides an after-school program for kindergarten through grade 5 children. They enjoy a period of free play upon arrival, followed by a snack and supervised homework time. The rest of the afternoon is filled with specialist and counselor-led activities. Our program builds self-confidence in children by helping them to expand their abilities and discover how their actions impact their relationships with others. Parents appreciate the fun-loving and highly trained staff and kids benefit from a camp-type atmosphere where kids can be kids!

Club J offers more than the typical after-school programs, including:

  • Highly trained staff, many of whom make connections with the Club J kids during summer camp
  • Time for intellectual and academic pursuits, offering homework help and special interest activities that expand upon school activities
  • Opportunity to make new friends through engaging activities 
  • Year-round pool access
  • A community that is open to all and proudly guided by Jewish values
