JCC Chicago is the largest JCC in North America, serving tens of thousands of children, teens, adults, seniors and families through our incredible selection of award-winning, life-enriching programs and experiences. We were founded more than 100 years ago as a place for new immigrants to find connection and community. Today, we are a vibrant, forward-thinking, world-class organization offering innovative and engaging touchpoints for our community and beyond.
Unlike other JCCs, JCC Chicago has multiple locations spanning hundreds of miles, from Lake Delton, WI, through Chicago’s North Shore, the City of Chicago and into the south suburbs. Our signature programs include ten day camps, two overnight camps, seven preschools, two aquatics centers, a beautiful, new fitness center, domestic and international travel opportunities, adult education classes and our annual JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival which welcomed 17,000 moviegoers this year.
Bernard Weinger JCC in Northbrook is home to our beloved Early Childhood program offering full and half-day preschool for children 6 months- 4 years old, Apachi Village Day Camp for 3-5 year olds, programs for teens, families, adults and seniors, special event spaces for birthday parties and more. The Marvin Lustbader Health Club, powered by Midtown, is a state-of-the-art fitness center with the newest cardio equipment, a cycle studio, weight room, two group exercise studios, plus renovated locker rooms with steam and massage. The 25-yard indoor pool and full-size gym round out the space with health and wellness options for all ages.
