Summer Camp • Continued from page 1 Each camp day begins and ends at the JCC on 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt. Depending on the camp, some campers may go off-site for scheduled field trips and specialty camp activities. Early and late care options are available for all campers. Young teens entering grades 7–10 looking to take on some responsibility should check out the Junior Camp Aide, Camp Aide and Counselor in Training (CIT) programs. They offer many opportunities to hone teamwork and leadership skills. Camp Rishon registration is currently in full swing. Register your child anytime right up until the start of camp on June 26 and throughout the summer prior to the start of each camp session. But don’t delay. Spots go quickly and some schoolage specialty camp sessions closeout early.

Welcome JCC Members The 2017 outdoor swimming season has finally arrived! The JCC of Syracuse’s outdoor heated pool is a great gathering place for members and their guests to cool off, relax and exercise. Make the most of your membership by using the pool to its fullest this summer. Come swim after work, on weekends with family and friends or after early morning workouts. Incorporating the pool into your personal fitness training will add a new dimension to your exercise routine. POOL RULES 1.

No glass containers of any kind are allowed in the pool area (food, beverages, lotions, etc.). 4. No food or gum is allowed in the pool area at anytime.

Like last year, we’re offering several aquatics programs throughout the summer (details on the pages that follow). They include learn-to-swim group lessons, private and semi-private swimming lessons, and children’s pool parties. Because the JCC pool is a members-only benefit (guests are welcome when accompanied by a member, see below), please remember to bring your membership card to the pool and check-in at the lifeguard desk upon entering the pool area. If you have any questions or comments regarding the pool, please contact us at 315-445-2360. Thank you for being a JCC of Syracuse member. We hope to see you pool side! 2. Children who are unable to stand with their heads completely above the water in the pool’s shallow end must be accompanied in the water by a supervising adult, sibling or babysitter age 15 or older, unless they pass a test with the lifeguard. The test consists of swimming two widths of the pool and treading water for 30 seconds. 3. Swimming accessories such as inflatable toys, kickboards, water noodles etc. may only be used in either pool with permission from the lifeguard. Permission may be denied if the pool is crowded or if items are deemed potential safety hazards. 4. No child is allowed in the small pool unless accompanied by an adult, sibling or babysitter age 15 or older. 5. The small pool is intended for non-swimmers. It is not to be used as a play area by those with swimming ability. At the lifeguard’s discretion, older children may be asked to leave the small pool. 6.
