Swim Lessons

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

We are committed to giving your child the best learning experience possible, and want them to be able to both learn and succeed at our swimming lessons.

When registering your camper, you will be asked to place them in a swim level. Be very aware of your camper's aquatic skill and ability so that we may place them in the proper swim group. Please communicate and questions, comments, or concerns with camp staff prior to the first day.
