Struggling with virtual school and cancelled events? Don’t worry parents, The Bender JCC can help! We are thrilled to offer Club J All Day, developed by our creative and caring Camp JCC and Kids-After-School staff.
Club J All Day is for families with children in Grades K – 5 that are in need of support, supervision, and (physically distant) socialization during the virtual school day.
The Bender JCC is offering a full day of in-person care (8 AM – 4 PM) during the virtual school months. Students will be grouped by age and will have dedicated staff that will provide help and support during their virtual school program. In addition, during any break times, we will have opportunities for the students to participate in activities like art, sports, games, outside time, and more.
Only looking for afternoon care? We will also be providing the same Club J opportunities from 12- 4 PM.
For all program options, students will need to provide their own computers/devices and headphones (with a microphone) for their online opportunities. The Bender JCC will provide wifi for students to be able to access their zoom classrooms.
This will be a monthly program and offered until MCPS is able to safely get our students back into schools. Our program will ensure social distancing and we will continue our frequent sanitizing schedule on top of adhering to all Montgomery County, Maryland State, and CDC guidance.

“Club J has been incredible for our family. When the pandemic began and public schools went virtual, we knew it would be challenging to balance our busy work schedules with our son Coby’s learning. He finished his kindergarten year at home, online, and we steeled ourselves for him to begin first grade in the same way. When we learned about Club J, we signed up early on, optimistic that it would be a good fit. We could never have known just how perfect it would be! Thanks to Club J, our son is more engaged with school than ever before. Even his teachers have complimented his growth thanks to the program! With his downtime spent socializing– even while social distancing– Coby has been able to stay focused and engaged during classes and to channel his considerable energy in between them into crafting and sports. We are tremendously grateful for the care and compassion he receives from Club J’s dedicated professional team, and to know that our little boy has a safe and fun space to spend his days while we work.” — Monica & Scott Herman, parents of Coby
