James Watkins, Camp Director
It can be over 100 degrees in Dallas in the summer do you play outside?
What sports will we work on?
Does my child have to swim?
What should my child wear and bring to Sports Camp?

“I’ve loved Sports Camp for so long!  I love all of the sports and new friends I got to make every year. We always got some sort of special activity in the afternoon.”

“Kids who attend Sports Camp at the JCC are all treated like super stars. They are encouraged to try new things and everyone wins as a team. It’s a fun and safe place to try every sport your child has ever wanted to play.”
