Welcome 2018! It’s hard to believe that it’s nearly 20 years since the JCC relocated to our current home here at the Campus back in 1999. So much has happened over that time. From the tragedy of 9-11 in 2001, to surviving a catastrophic hail storm in 2016, which threatened to shut down our building, we have sustained.

As Summer J-Camp began last month, I took a moment to reflect back on the past year. 2016-17 was a banner year for the JCC; from Early Childhood to Sports and Fitness, Camp to Cultural Arts, and everything in between, our JCC continues to be the place to be.

2016 was a challenging year for our Campus building and facilities. As you may recall last April, San Antonio was hit with several hail storms. Initially, we didn’t see any damage, but only 3 days later the building began to take on water from the ensuing rain; and we spent the next 8 months recovering, repairing, and replacing elements of our building that were subsequently damaged.
