Pool Parties

Pool parties are an excellent way to celebrate birthday parties, organize a play date or just fun for no reason at all.  Let the JCC Aquatics Department help you organize your pool party experience.  Parties allow access to the facility for your guests with no additional guest fee and a cool place to hang out in the shade. Parties must bring their own food and drink and plan to clean up after themselves with respect to the provided garbage cans. (Please respect campus restrictions and provide kosher food/drink.  Great examples for this are sodas, water, fruit boxes, cheese or veggie pizza, bagels, lox, cream cheese, etc…) Parties are held during pool operating hours.  For more information and to reserve your pool party space, please contact Aquatics Director, Heather Brands or 512-735-8222.

Additional lifeguards are required for all pool parties. Fees for lifeguards are as follows: $25 per lifeguard per hour.

Party requests should be made no less than 2 weeks out from the planned date/time.  Pool party rentals less than 2 weeks out from the event date are subject to availability.  All pool party rental dates/times are secured on a first come, first serve basis.  To officially secure a pool party rental the entire amount for reservation is due along with the signed contract agreement.
