This nonsectarian agency serves Somerset, Hunterdon and Warren counties. It provides opportunities for fitness and recreation as well as social, cultural and educational programs. The center's JCC Blaustein Early Childhood Center offers preschool programs and day care for toddlers through kindergarten age, and there are also after-school programs and summer camps.
For adults, program offerings include morning workshops, art classes, cooking workshops, film presentations and trips. Teens have the opportunity to participate in social events, community service, ski trips, sports and other activities. From kindergarten through sixth grade, children can take part in different camps, as well as enjoy birthday party packages with such activities as swimming, creative movement, dance and sports.
