J&R Day Camp

  • Olympic-size outdoor swimming pool with diving board
  • Zero-entry walk-in pool with rainbow and mushroom sprays
  • Giant-sized sun protecting mushroom umbrellas
Instructional Swim & Free Swim

Swimming is an integral part of our summer camp program and a vital life skill.

The JCC provides a great opportunity for your child to receive high-quality swim instruction based on the American Red Cross swim levels from our experienced staff, who provide a safe, fun, and friendly learning environment.

Campers will swim twice a day, every day! Our morning swim is instructional swim lessons and the afternoon is free swim time.

For campers and families to be able to keep track of their child’s swim progress, we use a report card system. When your child passes a swim level, they receive a report card associated with the level completed. The children’s swim levels are tested every Thursday and report cards are handed out on Fridays.

We will provide you with a progress report email at the end of camp notifying you of your child’s swimming progress.
