The Memphis JCC still has room in their camps! Sessions III and IV haven't started yet so there is still plenty of time to sign up. We have camps for preschoolers through 7th grade. We have general camp, sports specialty camps, and even a video game/move making camp during session three. You don't have to be a member to enjoy camp! Call 901-761-0810 or visit www.jccmemphis.org for more information.
