Swim Program

Campers in the Kreative Kangaroo Unit through Unit E receive swim instruction five days per week. Campers in Units F through H can opt for swimming lessons as a daily activity. Campers learn and develop new skills by playing games, such as Over/Under Limbo, Four Corners, Red Rover, and Sharks and Minnows. Two days a week campers will also indulge in afternoon free-swim sessions, which allow campers to gain confidence in the water and to practice and hone their skills. Joining in the free-swim fun, many of our swim instructors hold games and activities in the pool. 

Our certified pool staff also provide swimming report cards every three weeks to show campers' progression with various skills in and out of the pool. They are scored with a 'Introduced', 'Progressing' or 'Mastered' for multiple skills on each level, and counselors provide tailored written comments to let you know specifically how your camper is doing and what they need to work on.

If you have questions about our swim program or would like to register your camper for private lessons, please send an email to Please note: this email address is not active until June 1st, and will run through the end of camp each summer. We hope to see you at the pool!
