J Town will no longer be a barefoot society. All walking J Town guests will be required to wear J Town or other approved non-slip tread socks at all times. Our socks cost $2.50/pair and can be purchased at the JCC cashier's desk and retrieved with proof of payment in J Town. Every J Town guest will be required to have the J Town or other non-slip tread socks every time they visit J Town, so please remember to bring them with you, or you will be required to re-purchase the socks. We have socks in all sizes and each size comes in a fun color!

Ratio and Chaperone Policy:
Chaperones to J Town must be at least 16 years old, this includes older siblings watching younger siblings. The adult to child ratio is 1:4 for adults chaperoning children other than their own.

Thank you to our generous J Town donors:
