J CLUB is a licensed after school enrichment program offered at The Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus (JCC). Our program provides children from Kindergarten through 5th grade an opportunity to have fun, learn new skills, grow, and develop in positive ways. J CLUB is your child’s home away from home. At J CLUB, kids have after-school snack, get a head start on homework, and participate in fun activities in a Jewish setting. Join friends for Trivia Tuesdays, Wacky Competition Wednesdays, Think Tank Thursdays and more! Participants in the program will choose from multiple activities offered throughout the month. Activities may include sports, art, afterschool enrichment classes, playground time, and daily chugim.

Would your child know what to do if they forgot their house key? What if they were home alone and started choking? Our Kidz Home Alone class will give you and your child peace of mind when home alone. As creators of this class, we thought of every home alone scenario possible, and provide solutions for all of those ‘what-if’s”. This course is designed to teach your child about being home alone safely. An informative parent guide is included in the student manual and provides an avenue for discussion between parent and child. This engaging and interactive class is fun and includes guest speakers from the local Police and Fire Departments.
