    Teens



    The Teen Department at the OFJCC offers fun, engaging events and programs created and led by teens, both middle school and high school age.

    In addition to our calendar of diverse activities, events and trips, we offer enrichment classes, camps, community service volunteer opportunities, a Teen Center lounge area with supplies and games, and an opportunity to join the OFJCC delegation in competing at the JCC Maccabi Games® and Artsfest®.

    Our programs are infused with Jewish values and emphasize diversity, teamwork and skill development, connecting teens of all cultures to one another, the local community and the world.

    We strive to develop positive role models with a strong identity who are confident, creative, patient and respectful towards each others' differences. We understand the importance of creating a safe atmosphere and a culture where teens are able to grow and challenge themselves without fear of making mistakes.
