Each session may include activities such as archery, rock climbing, team sports, camp games, swim lessons and much more. Formal swim lessons will be taught by certified swim instructors and a snack will be provided each day. Children should arrive each day ready for swim lessons and have appropriate attire to change into after swimming (i.e. towel, sneakers, athletic attire, sunscreen and bug spray). In case of inclement weather, camp will continue.

Sessions 1, 2 and 3 include swim lessons. Swimmers must have passed all previous swimming levels in order to advance to the next level.
