We are actively planning for summer in 2021! We learned so much during our 2020 season and our intention is to return to a more typical J Camps line-up of offerings in 2021, while continuing to follow all Maryland Department of Health and CDC guidelines to keep campers and staff safe. 
Below is information on our originally planned 2020 season.  We will be updating with Summer 2021 information soon!

Our nationally-recognized J Camps aquatics program operates under the guidelines of the American Red Cross and emphasizes personal safety, swimming skills, and a positive self-image. Red Cross-trained Lifeguards supervise recreational swim and Water Safety Instructors (WSI) supervise all swim instruction at J Camps. As a State of Maryland licensed and ACA Accredited camp, J Camps routinely exceeds the state and county regulations for pool safety and supervision. 

At the Owings Mills location, the campers have exclusive use of the Family Z Pool and the Splash Pad at the Shapiro Aquatics Park during camp hours.

Learning to swim is a vital part of our daily camp program. All children who are well enough to attend camp are expected to participate in Instructional Swim.

All campers have the opportunity to participate daily in Recreational Swim. On their first day of camp, your child will be given an American Red Cross swim evaluation by a Water Safety Instructor (WSI). The Family Z Pool (which the campers use) in the Shapiro Aquatics Park is divided into 3 levels: Red Bands, White Bands, and Blue Bands.
