ACTIVE ADULT Senior Transportation

Everyone at the JCC is committed to providing quality programs and services to our members. We want to assure you that our senior programming is still going on throughout the summer. Mah Jongg and Bingo programs will continue in the Senior Lounge as normal. We understand that senior transportation is essential to many of our community members, and we will continue to offer these services three days a week throughout the summer. There are several ways that you can help support the senior program: encourage friends and family members to join the JCC and to send donations in support of the program. As we begin planning for the upcoming year we look forward to your input and ideas. If you have any questions or concerns, please call Ronneca Watkins or Judi Corsaro at (843) 571-6565. Thank you for your support.

Birthday Parties at the JCC!

Join us for the “pool party” workout for all ages. This class is safe, effective and a challenging water-based workout.

Please join us for daily Pickleball. We have a growing group of seniors who play this wonderful game on the JCC tennis courts. If you are interested in playing please contact Daniel Stern 843-6146482 or daniels@charlestonjcc.org. Free for JCC members!

Knowledgeable swim instructors are available to help you or your child meet your personal aquatic goals. All private swim lessons will be personalized for each individual and held oneon-one at a convenient time agreed upon by the participant and the instructor. 30min.

What better place than the JCC to have your child’s birthday party? Our parties are a no-muss-no-fuss deal that allows your child to have the party of their dreams! Families can choose between one of the creative themes and packages that can accommodate small parties or large family and friends parties. From the jump castle, decorations, sparkling Pearlstine Pool and custom themes, the JCC has got you covered this summer. Don’t forget about the Kosher food and cakes made right here in the JCC kitchens! We have it all, so stop in today and plan your child’s next birthday party. Here is a testimonial from Samantha Goldberg, whose son Harry Goldberg recently celebrated his 5th birthday party here at the JCC: “The JCC is the perfect place to have a birthday party! We had our son’s 5th birthday party there this year and his 4th birthday party there too. The price is very reasonable and they can accommodate a large number of children. The staff is so easy to plan with. If you are the kind of parent who wants to be very hands-on in the party planning process (like I was this year) you can simply e-mail your theme and suggestions for food, activities, and decorations. The staff will take it from there and do all of the running around, food prep, set up, and clean up. I work 45 hours a week and don’t have the space in my house to host lots of guests so I was thrilled to be able to put my own input into the party without having to stress out. If you don’t want to play the role of party planner, you can just suggest a theme and Alexis and the other staff can do all of the planning. I think Harry had a memorable experience and I would definitely have a party here again!”- Samantha Goldberg
