Afterschool Berkeley

JCC Afterschool Berkeley Program

The Afterschool Berkeley Program is located at our spacious and historic Berkeley facility at 1414 Walnut Street. We offer a diverse array of organized activities as well as opportunities for kids to relax and spend time with friends after school. Our staff is here to serve your child’s needs whether it be helping with homework, reading a story, working in the garden, or playing an energetic game of soccer out in our yard. In addition to our core activities, group programming, celebrations, and free play time, there is also a wide range of enrichment classes to choose from.

Hours for afterschool are: 1–6 PM, Monday through Friday.

Chugim (Enrichment Classes)

The JCC Afterschool Berkeley Program offers over 70 chugim (enrichment classes) each session to our enrolled students. We provide a wide scope of topics to choose from: cooking and baking, painting, sculpture, circus arts, martial arts, science and nature exploration, and ice skating are all offered as possible classes for your child to enjoy! Many of our classes are taught by our own staff while some are contracted out to professionals within the community- the cost of each class depending on material fees and instructor. With such a variety of chugim, there is a little something for everyone!
