SCOTCH PLAINS/FAWOOD, NJ -- Through a generous matching grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, the JCC of Central NJ has an opportunity to build a zero-entry pool (no edge) and enhance its existing outdoor pool area for Camp Yachad.  
The zero-entry pool will have fun, colorful splash pad elements, aimed at serving preschool and special needs populations. Enhancements will also be made to the existing outdoor pool area, including decking, landscaping, shading and fencing that will be built to create a more attractive “swim-club” like environment.
On Wednesday, December 17), preschool children, teachers, staff and Board members participated in a Golden Shovel groundbreaking ceremony in anticipation of having their new "just-right" size pool with splash-ground features ready for summer.
"We are excited to get started on the construction so that our new pool is ready for use in summer 2015," said Sandra A. Kenoff, director of marketing and special events for the JCC.
