Who We Are

The Superior Junior Chamber of Commerce (Jaycees) is a civic organization with a purpose of training the leaders of tomorrow. Leadership skills are learned through the hands-on experience of being involved in our various projects throughout the year. The Superior Jaycees are involved in many activities in the Superior-Douglas County area - be it a fundraiser, a community event or a social activity.

All of our members are between the ages of 21-39. A few of the great things about the Jaycees is the exposure to networking and meeting new people that are your age that are also interested in giving back to the community in a positive way!

The Superior Jaycees are a chapter of the Wisconsin Jaycees and the US Jaycees. We serve Douglas County with our headquarters in Superior.

Annual Jaycees Events!

Dragonboats Every August, the Jaycees put together a team to participate in the Lake Superior Dragonboat Festival held by the local Rotary. We have a great time at the event either under our canopy or paddling in the festival. In 2011 and 2012, we earned the gold medal in the Bronze Division at the festival.


Jaycees Sandbox Fill With the help of local businesses and the City of Superior, every June the Jaycees fill children's sandboxes with fresh clean sand for them to enjoy at no cost.


Adopt-a-Highway The Jaycees sponsor a two-mile stretch of Highway 2 between Wentworth and Poplar. Twice a year we go out and pick up the trash on the sides of the busy highway, followed by pizza and refreshments at Rapids Riverside.


Salvation Army Bell Ringing We ring the bells twice a year, once in July and once in December to raise money for the local Salvation Army.


Gitchee Gumee Brewfest Started in 1998, this brewfest has grown into the largest brewfest in the Northland. Held in April at Wessman Arena, this annual event has sold out in the past 5 years. Participants can sample over 130 different brews from over 33 different brewers. All profits go back into the community.
