by Brie We are very excited to welcome a new sponsor to Kids in the Capital: The Soloway Jewish Community Centre (JCC) of Ottawa!
The JCC has lots of great services and programs on offer for kids and families. From its salt water pool to its youth programs and birthday party packages, there is sure to be something of interest for every family.
Through friends I have heard great things about the JCC summer camps. In fact, two friends have already registered their kids for summer camps and the snow is nowhere near ready to leave us. The JCC of Ottawa runs a variety of different camps throughout the summer including Day Camps (age 2-15). Each week of the day camp program has a unique and exciting theme, like Magical Scientists, The Joy of Cooking or Tropical Paradise, so you can pick a theme that would be the best fit for your kids and not worry about repetition when you send them for multiple weeks.
Traveling Sports Camp (age 7-15) offers kids a totally unique experience as it is the only camp in the city that takes campers on a field trip every day. Traveling Sports Campers spend the morning at the Soloway JCC where they learn about a wide range of sports and have instructional swimming lessons. After lunch they hop on a bus for a different adventure every day. Some of the trips planned for this summer include Calypso Water Park, horseback riding, ice skating, bowling, go-karting, water skiing, NCC beaches and more. The Traveling Sports Camp and Day Camp include instructional swimming lessons plus a free swim every day.
Finally, there are 13 Specialty Camps (age 5-15) throughout the summer. Specialty Camps include: Girls on the Go, Fit Kids Have Fun!, Horseback Riding Camp, The Great Adventure, Dryland Hockey Camp, Tennis Camp, You Go Girl!, Triple Threat, Soccer Camp, Summertime Splash, Basketball Camp, Girl Power Camp and Last Blast.
Seriously. Can I go to camp?
If you haven't started thinking about summer yet, and let me tell you I am thinking about the hot sun of summer everyday, you may want to start. And sign up for some of the awesome summer camps offered by Soloway JCC before they fill up!
A big welcome to the Soloway JCC!
