The Tucson Jewish Community Center will hold a weeklong day camp for adults, “Around the World,” June 12-16.
The camp will explore the languages, cultures, and cuisines of Mexico, China, Italy, France and Israel, with each day devoted to a different country. Participants can register for the entire week or individual days.
“I wanted to find a way to showcase all that we do in the arts and culture department and through our adult classes at the J, as we are constantly expanding our languages program, hosting cooking classes in the J’s outstanding demonstration kitchen, and adding new studio art programs,” explains Barbara Fenig, director of arts and culture.
The cost is $50 per day or $225 for the week for members and $60 per day or $275 for the week for nonmembers.
