JMM Dance Co. is offering two summer camps for the week of June 17-21 geared toward students with special needs and those with limited resources or language barriers who usually would not be regular participants in summer camps. Spots for up to 40 qualifying kids. Preference will be given to residents of San Juan Bautista, but is open to the entire San Benito County. Kids who are selected will have the camp provided free of cost by JMM Dance Co with the support and donation from San Benito Arts CouncilAromas/San Juan School District, DanceMinds LLC, and Community Schools Foundation.

The Process

Check out our flyers (see PDFs below) with specific information on dates and times. Fill out the application and email it to or call (408) 600-5107 if you have any questions.

Currently, JMM Dance Co. is in need of additional funding for this project and are looking specifically for a camp t-shirt sponsor to provide camp shirts, or the funding of $550 to provide these for the participants. Please contact if you are able to provide this.

We are also looking for high school volunteers to help make this happen. The commitment is two trainings in May/June and June 17-21 from 8 a.m to 3:30 p.m.
