“AFTER SCHOOL” CLASSES
VIRTUAL CLASSES with JCAS

Experiment. Play. Make new friends. All from the comfort of home!

We’ve taken all the best parts of an after school experience and created a program that can be enjoyed from the comfort of home.


What will JCAS classes look and feel like?
As always, at the heart of our class experience is a creative and experiential curriculum provided in a warm, open and creative environment.  Students feel encouraged to take risks, explore ,and try their hand at a myriad of skills and techniques.

Full of traditional after school experiences – we’ll provide respite from a full day of school and engage your little one with activities and games including community building, art-making, experiments, and play time with friends!   


What will my child do during virtual classes?
Students will meet via zoom and be tasked with activities and challenges for the day. 

  • Students will have hands-on, fun and creative projects to complete  and will receive one-on-one time with instructors for feedback and support.
  • We’ll also hold virtual recess — being silly and playing games with camp friends!
  • At the class we’ll hold a virtual exhibition so that students can share their process and projects with family and friends online.

What do I need to be able to participate in Virtual Classes?
Technical Needs
For most camps (unless otherwise noted) you will just need a computer or tablet with access to internet and zoom.

Supplies and Materials
For camps where special supplies and materials are needed you will receive information about materials lists or curbside pick up for prepared supplies and materials.

If you are registered for class at least 10 days in advance, delivery options are also available for an additional fee.

Virtual Class best practices
Once registered for camp, you’ll be emailed with additional information including a “best practice” guide complete with tips + tricks and suggestions for setting up the best workspace for your child at home.
