Family Fun is Happening at Kaplen JCC on the Palisades (dedicated)

Weekly Events  / 

With kids already back-to-school, we bet you're wondering how you can still pack in as much fun as possible this Fall. Well, you can start on Sunday, September 16th from 1pm to 4pm at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades’ Annual Open House where members and guests can get the scoop on everything the 185,000-square-foot center has to offer. At the event, you’ll get to try out the indoor and outdoor pools, splash park, gyms, fitness center, fields, playgrounds, tumble room, and tennis and racquetball courts and take advantage of special kid-friendly activities like a moon bounce, a balloonologist, face painters, and roaming entertainers.

Everyone’s also welcome to participate in the JCC’s Thurnauer School of Music’s “Instrumental Petting Zoo,” where musical instruments are swapped in for animals and your brood can get their hands on everything from strings to percussion to wind instruments while chatting with instructors.


You'll get to try out the roster of programs the JCC will be offering this fall (and it’s a lot!) with sample classes and demos that’ll be taking place throughout the afternoon. Kids’ programming includes dance and drama demos and workshops, CMEK (basketball) lessons and demos, Stavri Tennis Academy workshops and group tournaments with prizes and giveaways, and a youth boot camp demo. Grownups can stay pretty busy, too. Expect Zumba, chair massages, and facial evaluations by JCC spa professionals, who’ll also be unveiling a new revitalizing seaweed-based skin care line offered at the spa this fall. And you can get in on acupuncture and nutrition consultations from experts from the Graf Center for Integrative Medicine, in association with Englewood Health right there at the event.

Use the time to take a tour, chat with a rep and sign up for a class. Come to think of it, fall sounds like it’s gonna be pretty fun too ...

Get $150 off membership if you join between now and October 31. Those who join during the Open House, get an extra $50 in JCC Cash. For more information call the Membership Office at 201.408.1448 or email
