The JCC had a vision for a Splashpad for five years and upon completion of a major fundraising effort, was finally able to secure the funds needed to move forward with construction. Camp officials worked with Commercial Recreation Specialists (CRS) to design a custom Splashpad with separate play areas for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy.
The resulting Splashpad offers a zero-depth aquatic solution that combines sensations of different water effects—flowing, misting and jetting—suitable for a variety of age groups and abilities. It features an eye-catching, central Splash Castle as well as a Toddler Bay, including colorful Waterbugs and ground sprays with various water effects. It also incorporates a Teen Bay where older children can engage in high-energy, interactive play with water cannons and Aqualien features that encourage creative play.
According to Camp Director Stacy Budkofsky, the Splashpad exceeded their expectations tenfold in the first year. She states, “It generated excitement with both campers and their parents and has already helped with retention for next camp season, as well as increasing overall JCC membership.”
