Happy Hanukkah & Thanksgiving!

Happy Hanukkah from the staff at JCC Maccabi Sports Camp!

This Hanukkah, give your child the greatest present of all… a summer at JCC Maccabi Sports Camp! View our email below to read about special discounts, our upcoming travel, and a special Hanukkah Open House at our office in San Francisco.

Registration Discounts & Information

The holiday season is upon us and we have two special registration discounts available during this season of giving:

  • The Founder’s Club discount has been extended through the end of Hanukkah; register before December 5th and receive $200 off camp tuition!
  • In honor of the unique overlapping of Thanksgiving with the first day of Hanukkah, we’re offering an additional $50 off camp tuition between now and the end of Hanukkah.  (That means you can save $250 if you register before December 5th!)

Did You Know?

Each edition of our newsletter will feature a “Did You Know” section where we’ll post recent news about Jews, sports, camp, or all of those topics!  This week’s news is about a Jewish baseball player, Ian Kinsler.   Did you know…

  • Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers was recently traded to the Detroit Tigers, in exchange for power-hitter Prince Fielder
  • He is a three-time All Star 2nd Baseman and is one of only 12 players in MLB who’ve had multiple 30-30 club seasons (30 home runs & 30 stolen bases in the same season!)
  • Kinsler is one of 16 Jewish players in Major League Baseball (the complete list can be found here)

We hope you enjoyed the Hanukkah/Thanksgiving/November edition of our e-newsletter.  Stay tuned for our December update in a few weeks!
