"A Fabulous Time"

"I'm writing to thank you and everyone at JKCP. Katie had so much fun at Xploration. She started out so homesick and thanks to her counselors, she got over it and ended up having a fabulous time. We are [already] talking about her going back there next summer. Please pass on my appreciation to Julian (who was also extremely helpful) and the counselors for helping make Katie's summer so much fun. She also made some great friends!”  Marj B, parent

Learn from Sports Professionals

Expand your Sports & Fitness horizons

This is your chance to explore new skills and experiences in a friendly atmosphere with great teachers and classmates — people who are excited about the same things you are. There are several groups for each course and we’ll make sure you’re in the right one for you.

The choice is yours!

Setting up your day is easy. You'll choose one course for the morning, 9:30-12:00, and another for the afternoon, 1:30-4:00. A half-day course is 12.5 hours of class time.

For example, you might do the Sports Experience from 9:30 to 12. Video Production from 1:30 to 4:00. That sounds like a great week. View the full Xploration schedule to create your custom week.
