"Halei has been enjoying an exciting summer with Camp Shai's "On the Road" program. Her favorite activities of the summer through, have been hiking in the mountains and going to the water parks and amusement parks. She has a severe speech disability, but she's been coming home and putting sentences together." Margie Carrino, mother of 13-year old Halei, a child with disabilities.

Background Statement

The Jewish Community Center of Denver opened in 1922 at the Louise Guldman Center, a modest building on Denver's west side, and moved to larger facilities at 16th and Irving Streets soon thereafter. The JCC outgrew this second home when it expanded its services to include day camps and programs for young adults and seniors. After years of renting facilities from other organizations, including the B'nai B'rith Lodge at East Colfax and Williams Street, the JCC opened on 10 acres of land at East Alameda and Dahlia Streets, its current site, in 1962. After extensive renovations, the JCC was dedicated as the Robert E. Loup Jewish Community Center in 1995, in honor of Mr. Loup's leadership and service. In June of 2017, the Center was renamed the Staenberg-Loup Jewish Community Center to honor Robert E. Loup and Michael Staenberg.
