Jersey City’s Department of Recreation is expanding its after-school programming through the end of the school year at 10 locations throughout the city.
Standard recreation sports such as basketball, bowling, tennis, volleyball, golf, and swimming will be offered, as well as more creative options, including fishing, chess, gymnastics, dance, arts and crafts, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) classes.
