Let your child have a blast at the JCC during the upcoming Columbus Day off from school! The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse will hold a Columbus Day vacation camp for children in grades K-6 on Monday, Oct. 10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the center on 5655 Thompson Rd., DeWitt. The camp will be filled with lots of fun activities such as arts and crafts, sports and more. Half-day options as well as early/late care to extend the day from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. are also available.

“We’ve got so many cool things lined up for the children to enjoy,” said Mick Hagan, JCC director of Children and Teen Services. “The kids can get creative with hands-on, fall-themed activities and we’ll get them moving by playing some cool games and sports. It’s going to be fun for everyone.”

The morning activities will include create your own Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria ships, playing ships and sailors in the JCC gym and more. The afternoon will feature fall-themed crafts, Ga-ga (Israeli dodgeball), football frenzy and dancing games. Full-day campers are asked to bring a non-meat lunch. An afternoon snack will be provided.

The camp’s half-day options, when available, will run from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Early registration pricing through Oct. 5 starts at $35 per child for the half-day program and $55 for a full day, with a discount offered for siblings. Registration is discounted for JCC members, however membership or JCC program enrollment is not necessary for a child to attend.
