Special Needs

The JCC of Central New Jersey is committed to the inclusion of people of all abilities, backgrounds, denominations, gender identity and religious affiliations into all of our programs. We are committed to making our Wilf Jewish Community Campus a barrier-free environment and our programs equally inclusive. We believe inclusion is an attitude, not an activity. Inclusion is belonging. If you or a family member would like to participate in a JCC program and feel you may need special accommodations, please contact Mallory Zipkin at mzipkin@jccnj.org or 908-889-8800 x240. Whenever possible we will make reasonable accommodations to ensure accessibility for all. The JCC of Central NJ is a place where everyone is welcome.

JCC Shadow Program

If you would like your child to participate in a JCC program and feel that he/she may need special accommodations, please contact Mallory Zipkin at mzipkin@jccnj.org.  The JCC will evaluate each program and child to try to successfully match your child with an appropriate shadow volunteer.  We will look at each child on an individual basis to determine need and appropriateness of program.  Please note that there will be an additional fee for a shadow if we are unable to provide a trained volunteer.

Whenever possible, Camp Yachad serves children with disabilities in the same groups as all the other campers.  If you are interested in summer camp for your special needs child, please contact Mallory Zipkin at 908-889-8800 x240 or mzipkin@jccnj.org. Read more about our Camp Yachad Shadow Program.

Adaptive Sports with Throwback Sports

Individual or group sessions are scheduled to encourage happy and active children. In each Throwback Sports session, focus is on the Personal Play Goals that gradually allow for an increased teamwork concept while building up core physical skills. The key to all this is having fun. Children work towards understanding the concepts, strategies and significance of engaging with others in sports play such as baseball, football and basketball.  Facilitated by Mike Cohen and the Throwback Sports Team.  For more information, please email mzipkin@jccnj.org.
