The JCC of Syracuse will offer school-age children a day filled with fun and exciting activities during the upcoming Veterans Day school break.

The JCC’s Veterans Day vacation camp for grades K-7 children will be held on Friday, Nov. 10 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the JCC on 5655 Thompson Rd., DeWitt. Activities will include games, arts and crafts, sports and other age-appropriate activities. Half-day programs and early/late care to extend the day from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. are also available.

“We’ll have some creative patriotic themed activities for the children to enjoy as a way of saluting veterans and recognizing the importance of Veterans Day,” said Mick Hagan, JCC director of children and teen services. “We’re also going to get everyone moving and active with a boot camp, team games and capture the flag in the gym.”

The camp’s half-day options will run from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Full-day campers are asked to bring a non-meat lunch. An afternoon snack will be provided.

Early registration pricing and a discount for siblings is available through Nov. 3. Registration is discounted for JCC members, however membership or JCC program enrollment is not necessary for a child to attend the Veterans Day vacation camp.
