Testimonials

  • My daughter loves JJ’s Jam and wants to keep going back summer after summer. Each week there are numerous field trips throughout the Twin Cities; she’s visited great parks, waterparks and museums, attended live stage performances and even athletic events. Water Wednesdays are her favorite because she gets to visit a new waterpark each week; but she loves them all. She can’t wait to tell us about her adventures each day.

    JJ's Jam Parent
  • As a mom, I love JJ’s Jam because of the great relationships my daughter has developed with all of the staff; they really take the time to get to know each child. The program is all inclusive, I don’t need to pack any food and she’s getting healthy options she loves and opportunities to taste something new; she’s even asked me to make JJ’s Jam recipes at home. Scheduling is very flexible, allowing us to sign up for one day a week or all five; all summer long. Plus, with the variety of field trips offered, my daughter gets a fun and exciting summer vacation.

  • We tried other programs one summer and came back! We learned that JJ’s Jam is different than the rest; other programs didn’t offer the number or variety of experiences, the flexible scheduling, delicious and nutritious food, all in a caring environment. Our younger daughter can’t wait to join her older sister at JJ’s Jam this summer.
