This is pre-college enrichment giving you a chance to experience courses you may want to take in college. Whether you are interested in visual arts, performing arts, language study, culinary arts, or fashion design, Enrichment gives you maximum choices and scheduling ﬂexibility. So, you can focus on your favorite activity, try something new, or do both. With our weekly sessions you can stay as long as you like and take different courses each week.
Plus, you can mix and match those courses with many more in Sports & Fitness, Science & Technology, and Business & Leadership — including Yoga, Tennis, Computers, Engineering & Robotics, SAT Test Prep, Community Service and others.
"Kayla has been to sleepaway camp in the past and has had a few good summer experiences but nothing that has resonated with her as much as JKCP. She raved about the courses (from cooking and public speaking to photography and art), the counselors, and the trips. She's already talking about summer 2011!” Aisha G, parent

This is your chance to explore new skills and experiences in a friendly atmosphere with great teachers and classmates — people who are excited about the same things you are. There are several groups for each course and we’ll make sure you’re in the right one for you.
Setting up your day is easy. You'll choose either one course for the whole day, or one course for the morning, 9:30-12:00, and another for the afternoon, 1:30-4:00.
For example, you might do Photography from 9:30 to 12. Film Studies from 1:30 to 4:00. That sounds like a great week. View the full Enrichment schedule to create your custom week.
