Think back to your youth - there was probably a place or time that immediately evokes great memories and likely still puts a smile on your face. A place where you made friends, and probably without realizing it, learned some of life's most valuable lessons.

For the kids and young adults in the our youth programs, the JCC is that place. Take the example of Jerrad Strand, a kid who was practically raised at the JCC. The positive memories were so strong for Jerrad, he returned as an adult to run our AfterSchool and Summer Camp programs.

For more than 30 years, the JCC has been home to "Bernie Camp" – a 10-week summer camp in memory of Bernie Solomon, beloved former Executive Director of the JCC who died much too young. Our AfterSchool program is a favorite among parents and kids. We pick kids up from several schools in the Salt Lake City area and bring them to the JCC for a fun and enriching afternoon.

We offer:

  • Summer Camps
  • Pre & Post Summer Camps
  • After School Programs (with bus pickups at many Salt Lake City area schools)
  • School Break Camps (filling the void when school's out)
  • A safe, fun and enriching environment for kids of all ages and backgrounds
  • Plenty more . . .
