8 years and older can be at Aquatics Center alone/unsupervised. 7 years and younger must be within arms reach of a responsible person 12 and older at all time. Would love to raise the unsupervised age as it’s 12 years old at our Recreation Center.
NJ Bathing code requires anyone under 16 yrs old must have a parent or guardian with them. However, we usually permit 11-12 yr olds to swim as long they’re regulars and we have no disciplinary problems with them. Usually there is at least one parent on the beach who would “assume” supervision of the kids if needed.
