The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse will offer a Winter Break vacation camp for school-age children in grades K-6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 26 through Friday, Dec. 30, and on Monday, Jan. 2, at the JCC on 5655 Thompson Rd., DeWitt. Half-day programs and early/late care to extend the day from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. are also available.

Each day of camp a variety of age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities will keep the children busy, entertained and having fun. From sledding, snowman making, arts and crafts, sports and games to local field trips, there will be something for everyone to make this upcoming break from school memorable. Local field trips planned will be to the MOST and Bowl Mor Lanes.

“We can’t wait to make this winter break fun and exciting for the children,” said Mick Hagan, the JCC’s director of children and teen services. “We’ve got great activities and field trips planned to make each day a total blast.”

All campers should bring winter clothing for daily outdoor activities, weather permitting, including waterproof pants, coats, hats and gloves. Sneakers are required to play in the gym.

The camp’s half-day options, when available, 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 Dec. 14. Registration is discounted for JCC members, however membership or JCC program enrollment is not necessary for a child to attend the Winter Break vacation camp.
