uided by a strong committee led by project chair Pam Brewster and motivated by the goal to help our

youngest swimmers transition from splashing to swimming and to provide a safe and accessible pool for

children with special needs, our community pooled their resources to fund a fun, ‘just-right’ size pool. With

over 130 individual contributions ranging from $18 to $35,000 and a matching grant from the Harold Grinspoon

Foundation, we raised

more than $200,000.

Our new outdoor pool was transformative in its ability to infuse new energy into the JCC and kick off another great

summer at Camp Yachad with a splash. Weekends were packed with young families gathering together to swim, play

and connect, and we were thrilled to see our JCC bustling all summer long thanks to our members.

The high volume of laughs and screeches of joy have proven to be our best measurement of success.
