Teen & Young Adult Club
The Shirley and Chester Paul Special Needs Program at the Alper JCC offers a fun, stimulating, and dynamic program for children, teens and adults with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. Programs include a summer camp called Tikvah,
Tikvah, Winter Mini-Camp, Spring Mini-Camp and No-School Holidays.
Our program is structured to instill confidence, develop social and life skills, increase attention span, and improve fine and gross motor abilities. In addition, everyone participates in a variety of activities including indoor/outdoor games, swimming, cooking, field trips.
Our Inclusion Program is for high functioning campers in the Alper JCC's summer camp. Campers will have an advocate to guide them throughout the day and will be part of a general camp bunk.
JCC Membership is required in order to participate in the Special Needs program.
