To Our JCC Friends and Family:
It is another exciting year at the JCC. If you are a returning member, welcome back. If you are considering the JCC, we strive to be inclusive of everyone in the Greater Worcester community-we are a true community center. We hope you and your family will join us.
This year’s guide represents an increasing emphasis on programming that has been created, reworked and tweaked to be responsive to your needs and wants. While we continue to have the best early childhood, summer camps and youth basketball programs, we have expanded and improved everything from the fitness equipment to adult basketball leagues. We have an entirely new basketball gym, the area’s most extensive offering of Les Mills group exercise programs, and have introduced small group training to meet your demands for a more intensive work out.
The JCC serves a diverse community and is open to all. We are proud to offer need-based scholarships. Our single most important objective continues to be to provide the Worcester community with the friendliest service and the highest quality programming that constantly evolves to meet your needs.
Please stop by and check us out or sign up for one of our many programs today!
