Youth in grades 6-12 have access to roam the JCC facilities without parental or adult supervision. There are three exceptions to this policy: the weight room, the pool when there is no lifeguard on duty and rental rooms. The youth who roam the JCC after school are expected to display the same behavior that we expect of all youth at the JCC: respect of others and utilization of appropriate language at all times.
