Parent Testimonials on Alternative Summer Experience at The Shaw JCC in Akron

“They have loved every counselor they’ve had each day (they call them their teachers). They really enjoy the different arts & crafts projects they do each day. They rush into the house at the end of each day to show us everything they worked on and made during the day. Moreover, they love free swim and the opportunity to practice their swimming skills. These are all things I could not provide this summer. We are a household with two parents working full-time 100% from home during this pandemic, so we’re improvising, adapting and overcoming! Alternative Summer Experience has made everyone’s level of happiness go way up!
If you are struggling with the daily boredom, whining, and attempts at creating some semblance of normalcy for your kids during this very unprecedented time in history, JCC’s Alternative Summer Experience has been a lifesaver.” Michelle Dickstein, mom of 3 kids attending camp.
