Summer Camp

We are happy to announce that our SyraCrusin’ Teen Travel Camp will be back this summer after a two year hiatus due to COVID. Tweens and Teens entering grades 7 – 10 can register for this camp!. There will be 5 weeks of camp offered. Each week the camp will travel to various locations around central New York, one park and volunteer for a local non profit for one day.


Job Openings

The JCC is a wonderful entrance to the workforce. The administration is familiar with employing teens and teaching them the various positions and how to be a professional.

Battle of the Bands

Are you ready to rock?

The JCC of Syracuse’s high school Battle of the Bands concert is Central New York’s premiere showcase and competition for student “garage-band” musicians.

The event is held in January and gives high school bands an opportunity to play in front of their friends and family, as well as a chance to win some cash and other cool prizes. Bands playing all types of music are welcome—from folk, ska, modern and indie to reggae, rock and everything in between! Judges for the Battle of the Bands are typically local professionals involved with the CNY music scene.

Do you think your band is up for the challenge to jam at the next JCC Battle of the Bands concert? Check back here for the 2023 Battle of the Bands!
