J Days / School's Off Days

Always a Place to Go

Kids have fun at the JCC when school is not in session. J Days (Squirrel Hill) and School’s Off Days (South Hills) are programmed with field trips and in-house, and most days include swimming, creating and run-around time for children from PreK through grade 6.

The JCC also offers programming and care when schools are closed for snow or inclement weather. Call the JCC in Squirrel Hill at 412-521-8010 or South Hills at 412-278-1975, as early as 7 am to confirm.

Before and after care is available to extend the day.
