Enroll in summer day camp swimming lessons
Your child can take his/her swimming skills to the next level by enrolling in summer day camp swim lessons, designed exclusively for campers. To ensure campers will not miss any field trips, classes will meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
On the first day of lessons, campers will be swim tested and placed in a class according to their swimming ability. We highly recommend registering campers each week they are enrolled in camp so they can continue to improve their skills and swimming endurance.
Camp swim lessons run from June 5-August 11.
