Parents Grapple With Late August, When Options for Kids Dwindle
Published Wednesday, August 9, 2017

Some parents want their kids to prepare for the fast-approaching academic year during those weeks, and the Kaiserman JCC in Wynnewood now offers an educational program that blends learning and summer fun. The JCC’s KidVentures Post Camp will run from Aug. 21 to Sept. 1. The program succeeds the JCC’s popular day camp, which ends Aug. 18. While the traditional day camp emphasizes fun summer experiences, the post-camp focuses on enrichment, with math-centric cooking and engineering challenges. The activities entertain campers, but they also provide a foundation for the upcoming school year.

Planting Trees with K2
Published Tuesday, November 24, 2015

"The main reason we like trees is because they are both beautiful and majestic. No two are alike. Different species display a seemingly endless variety of shapes, forms, textures and vibrant colors. Even individual trees vary their appearance throughout the course of the year as the seasons change. The strength, long lifespan and regal stature of trees give them a monument-like quality. Most of us react to the presence of trees with a pleasant, relaxed, comfortable feeling. In fact, many people plant trees as living memorials of life-changing events." quote from website.

Myths About Exercise and Older Adults
Published Friday, November 13, 2015

Have you given up on exercise? A lot of older people do -- just one out of four people between the ages of 65 and 74 exercises regularly. Many people assume that they're too out-of-shape, or sick, or tired, or just plain old to exercise. They're wrong.

"Exercise is almost always good for people of any age," says Chhanda Dutta, PhD, chief of the Clinical Gerontology Branch at the National Institute on Aging. Exercise can help make you stronger, prevent bone loss, improve balance and coordination, lift your mood, boost your memory, and ease the symptoms of many chronic conditions.
