The JCC is dedicated to providing opportunities for campers to live and play in an atmosphere of trust and caring, and to open up new interests, enriching their lives and teaching them new skills. Our goal is to help children and teens become physically and emotionally strong individuals. We want to provide happy experiences and joyful memories for our campers.
The Heron Lakes Family Center is located at 5601 Coral Ridge Drive, Coral Springs at the intersection of Coral Ridge Drive and Westview Drive in The Shoppes at Heron Lakes. We offer a complete Preschool Camp Program with optional trips for 4's and 5's. The 4 year olds travel 3 days per week and the 5 year olds travel 4 days per week. All preschool children attend Cypress Pool & Water Park (includes swim instruction), movies, various local trips including a tour of Publix, the police and fire stations, My Jewish Discovery Children's Museum, Young at Art Children's Museum, Pump it Up, and much more.

Sixth through ninth graders can enjoy a travel experience originating from the Perlman Family Campus with a special one week sleep away experience in the Poconos if desired.
