Club Kulanu


New this summer, Club Kulanu, Hebrew for “All of Us,” will utilize our beautiful St. Paul JCC, Camp Butwin and the Highland neighborhood to create an amazing summer for teens and adults with developmental disabilities, ages 16+.  Our beautiful new aquatics and fitness centers offer the opportunity to swim, work with personal trainers and take advantage of our best-in-class facility.  We will take a wide range of recreational field trips and experience life skills such as grocery shopping, cooking and learning to use public transportation. Every day is filled with unique and meaningful opportunities to learn as a group, grow skills in key areas, spend time outside, and engage in social and recreational activities —all while having a ton of fun!


We look forward to seeing you in 2021!
