Swim Program

What fun would summer be without swimming? All campers receive certified swim instruction or enjoy recreational swim daily. Our instructors are trained to offer compassion-based instruction, positive reinforcement and encouragement each step of the way. Our swim program helps campers achieve confidence and success in the pool.

Both J locations have outdoor and indoor pools (five pools between the two locations!), so there’s no need to spend time riding a bus to enjoy the pool. The J has one of the best aquatics programs and swim experiences in St. Louis.

For more information about J Day Camps, please contact:
Camp Director: Brad Chotiner (Chots), 314-442-3423
