Tween & Teen Programs

Tween/Teen Lounge

Monday-Friday | 3-6pm
Check out our Tween/Teen Lounge for grades 5-8! It’s a great place for tweens and teens to hang out with their friends and play the latest video games, air hockey, pool and more! Staffed by a youth supervisor. Free and open to J members only!

Saturday Night Out

Calling all 5-8 graders, it’s time to hit the town on a crazy adventure! Start at The J’s Teen Lounge for Havdalah and mixers, then we’ll hop in the vans and check out a new location each month. All entry costs are included and a snack is provided upon return to The J by 9:45pm.

See our Saturday Night Out programs. For more information or to register, contact the youth department at 480.634.4949 or

Leadership in Training

Tweens and teens can gain valuable experience through our Leadership in Training program. During School’s Out Days and Holiday Camps, they work hands-on with our experienced counselors, learning the skills to become a future counselor at The J while implementing programming to ensure our campers have a fun.

See our Leadership in Training programs.
The J is proud to partner with BBYO to provide recreational sports and socializing for Jewish youth.
