JCrew maintains a high staff to child ratio. JCrew is under the direction of Melo Taylor, JCC Director of Youth & Teen Programs. Groups are supervised by adults and high school aged students.  We  strive to ensure that the children are actively and safely engaged in a range of interesting and fun experiences. All staff participates in on-going training throughout the school year.
