1 - 5 p.m.
1-2 p.m. - "Hold the Horn" hour designed for children with special needs
Offsite parking will be available at the UCVTS campus at 1776 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains
Back for its second year, this event provides a unique opportunity for children to explore vehicles of all types including public service, emergency, utility, construction, landscaping, transportation, delivery and just have FUN – all in one place! Children will be allowed to touch their favorite vehicles, get behind the wheel, climb, explore and learn! Our very own Camp Yachad will be providing even more fun with bouncing and games and our new rock wall on our campsite. Food trucks and music will also be part of the day’s entertainment. The event will be free and open to the community and will run rain or shine.
An important aspect of the event will be the “Hold the Horn” hour from 1 – 2pm designed for children with special needs and those with auditory sensitivity issues - no horns, music or sirens! The JCC has made a commitment to create a more inclusive community with opportunities for all members and their families to participate in all that we have to offer.
Dollars raised from sponsorships allow us to make this event free and will support the JCC's Camp Yachad. While we offer all of the fun of summer, one would expect from a day camp, because we are a not-for-profit agency and a JCC, our camp is a little different. We give back and we build community. For families who couldn't otherwise afford day camp, we offer scholarships to ease financial burden. For families of children with special needs, we have "shadows" who work with these children so that they too can enjoy the magic of camp in an inclusive environment. We have a thriving teen program where we educate our young adults about philanthropy and leadership so they develop into strong contributors to our community.
