Indoor and Outdoor Pool Open Swim

We reserve lanes in our 25-meter indoor pool all year round for open swim. During the summer, dedicated lanes are available for open swim in our outdoor pool, with family swim every afternoon.

Summer Family Camp 

August is the best time to escape for the weekend to our Camp Wise property in Chardon. Activities for the entire family include swimming, lake fun, Shabbat and Havdalah services, climbing tower and zip-line, sports, and of course campfires and songs. Family Camp 2024 will be held Aug 9-11. 

Fitness and Exercise

Work out as a family at The J. Youth ages 10 and over can use our indoor track, gym with basketball and Pickleball courts, racquetball courts and fitness center equipment (age restrictions apply). Our youth personal training program is great for injury recovery, sports training or maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

American Red Cross Learn to Swim

The J has been a winner of the Northeast Ohio Parent Choice Award for Best Place for Kids' Swim Lessons several years in a row. We offer swim lessons for individuals of all skill levels. For children ages 6-12, our five levels of lessons are based on a logical progression from introduction to water skills and safety to stroke development and deep water swimming/treading water.

Family Fun Day at Camp Wise

Wrap up the summer with an afternoon at Camp Wise in Chardon. Kids of all ages will get in touch with their adventurous side on the high ropes, tubing on the lake or racing down the pool water slide. Activities include art projects, exploring on our trails and playing Gaga. Family Fun Day at Camp Wise 2024 will be held August 25.
