Lovin’ Summer at the JCC 

Wondering what to do with your summer? We have some ideas. Whether you’re looking for an inspiring class, one-off event, poolside vibes, or a new exercise regimen, there’s something for you at the JCC.  


No matter the season, class offerings at the JCC are broad and cater to many interests. Hoping to dip your toes in the art of ceramics? Join our Wheelthrowing class for beginners, or try out the Mixed Levels Ceramics class if you already have some experience! For the art-centric families out there, we highly recommend signing up for the JCC + La Paloma Glass Present: Stained Glass with your Family. This class will guide you and your family through the art of stained glass creation, and you’re sure to leave with a smile on your face. Other art offerings range from Gold Luster Workshops, to Woven Wall hangings, to One-timers ceramics classes – perfect for date night or an afternoon with friends! 

As with each season, summer presents a chance to brush up on your baking skills. From babka, to challah, to Sephardic breads for brunch, the JCC Kitchen is the place to learn new techniques, and connect with Jewish tradition through your taste buds. Check out our class offerings here! 

Last but not least, we’re excited to be offering a new art opportunity for youngsters: Artistic Kids Camp! With four different week-long sessions, each with its own unique theme, your artistic camper will get to explore different mediums and methods of creating art, surrounded by like-minded peers and inspiring teachers. Brush up on the details and registration information on our website.     


The JCC will be kicking off summer the right way – with a celebration of Pride at PrideFest Denver! Join us for a weekend of festivities honoring the LGBTQIA+ community by attending Pride Shabbat at the JCC, visiting us at the Jewish Community Booth in Civic Center Park, or marching with us in the Pride Parade. If you’re interested in volunteering for shifts at the Jewish Community Booth, contact Daniel via email for more information.

Once you’ve recovered from the excitement of Pride, shimmy over to the Fitness Center for a Community Zumba event on July 15 where we’ll be cutting a rug and burning some calories. Why pass up a chance to move and groove?  

Oh, and what’s better than a bike ride with friends? A bike ride with friends and BAGELS. Join Daniel Seigel on July 30 for the Jewish Deli Bike Tour, your chance to pedal and nosh your way across Denver.
