RED CROSS SWIM INSTRUCTION & AQUATICS PROGRAM 
BOYS & GIRLS, RISING GRADES PRE-SCHOOL – 10TH

“The swimming program was amazing! My son learned so much!”   – Rebecca B.

MAKE A SPLASH AT THE POOL

Swimming is one of the most exciting parts of the camp day. Under the guidance and watchful eye of our American Red Cross certified lifeguards and instructors, campers develop life skills too valuable to measure while learning how to swim confidently in a safe and fun environment. We maintain a low staff to camper ratio.

We develop swimmers utilizing the latest teaching techniques and coaching methods. Beginning with water safety skills and basic fundamentals, we then move on to progressive stroke development and refinement of techniques. Our well-established program is designed to be compatible with the unique and ever-changing abilities and skill levels of each camper.
