Even though we’re not able to gather together at “Our Summer Place” this year, we’ve found that the Camp Barney Medintz community is stronger than ever. With everything that the community is up to, we wanted to make sure there was one place where you can keep track of all of it. We’ll be using this page to bring you updates on everything that the Camp Barney team and community are creating for Summer 2020.
The MJCCA is open – continue to work out with us virtually on the MJCCA Fitness Facebook page or in person! See the our Group Exercise Classes at atlantajcc.org/groupexerciseschedule and learn about new safety measures and policies at atlantajcc.org/reopen!
We are also excited to share with you a free option to help keep you active and working out at home. From Les Mills™, this platform offers 95 free workouts across eight categories. It won’t automatically collect your data, and it will remain available as long as the disruption from Coronavirus continues. We hope you also enjoy this additional way to keep your workouts going!
