Today, JCC Denver has taken these core principles and evolved into something more. We have grown beyond our walls and become a community. A community which regularly impacts people’s lives. We are a community which opens its literal and figurative doors to anyone who wants to be part of something that feels like home, a place that is both warm and welcoming.

We have become the hub of the Jewish community in Denver by providing exceptional programs and services that enhance Jewish continuity and identity in six key program areas:

  1. Fitness and Aquatics Center 

  2. Early Childhood Center 

  3. Arts & Theater Programs 

  4. JCC Camps 

  5. Family Programs
  6. Jewish Life

Our Future
The board and staff of JCC Denver recently launched a significant capital campaign to fund a series of projects that will transform the JCC. Our goals are to: 


  • Develop a state-of-the-art campus to better serve our members 

  • Provide opportunities for more community members to participate in our many offerings
  • Strengthen programs across all our service lines 


Standing still has never been part of our character, and we are excited to develop the best in class, amenity rich, high efficiency facilities to support the JCC Denver’s award-winning, nationally recognized programming. 
The core of the transformation project will include: 


  • Constructing a new 63,000 sq ft. state-of-the-art fitness center including an aquatics center with four indoor and outdoor pools 

  • Improving and expanding parking 

  • Developing a multi-generational family center 

  • Renovating the early childhood education center 

  • Refreshing the MACC (Mizel Arts & Culture Center) 

  • Enhancing the outdoor play areas and adding a recreation field 

  • Developing new office facilities for JCC operations 

  • Constructing a climate controlled indoor tennis facility 


Recently we have completed the first phase of upgrades which provide a whole new look and feel to the JCC’s existing fitness center, common areas and lobby. These upgrades will improve the members’ experience during the approximately 12-18 months it will take the JCC to construct our new fitness and aquatics center on another portion of our existing site.

Many community members have pledged their financial support for these goals, and we look forward to engaging many others in supporting our bold, exciting vision by being part of the capital campaign.
