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.
