Review for The Bernard And Ruth Siegel Jewish Community Center Of Delaware Inc, Wilmington, DE, USA
The JCC has been central to our family's life in Wilmington for the last 25 years. Both of my sons were cared for, lovingly, in their Early Childhood Center and camps, participating in sports and various activities throughout their childhood and teens. Even now, when they return to Wilmington, the J is one of the first places they head to for pick-up games with old friends. For me the J has been the place where I began my path to physical fitness, taking full advantage of their personal training back in the 90s. Now I thoroughly enjoy the state of the art fitness center, swimming pool and outdoor campus which has the advantage of being adjacent to a state park. Most important to me, however, has been the opportunity the J gave me to grow personally as a volunteer. I developed valuable career skills doing work I wouldn't have been exposed in to my professional career. I also had a chance to observe and actively participate in the JCC's outstanding governance with a group of committed lay leaders. Having served on a number of boards, my observation is that the JCC is among the best - focused, strategic, forward thinking, and very well run. My current role is general member, but I have also been an employee, as well as a volunteer, a board member, and a past president. I've seen it all, and I give them 5 stars.
