Summer Swim Activities
Registration NOW OPEN for our Summer Fun Swim Camp! The camp is open to ages 6 thru 12 years old with or without swimming experience. The one-week camp will be filled with pool activities, exercise, games and crafts. The pool activities will be led and supervised by our American Red Cross Certified Lifeguards and will introduce and incorporate the American Red Cross Water Safety Program. Additional pool supervision will be provided by our certified, qualified, experienced, and friendly staff and will also help with crafts, games, and snacks!
The American Red Cross wants to help parents, caregivers, and kids to learn and share water safety knowledge and skills together. If your child isn't able to take formal swim lessons right now, you can still help them learn to be safer around backyard pools, ponds or other natural bodies of water. We'll be providing the campers with resources to help them learn about water safety while having fun in and around water.
We'll use the Red Cross content designed for kindergarten through second graders, as well as for third through sixth graders which includes a video and activity sheet for their age group, and then take a quick 3-question quiz to help them demonstrate what they've learned and take pride in their new knowledge! A 'Parent & Caregiver Guide' will be available to help you enhance their learning.
The week-long camp will be held Monday through Friday 10:00am-12:00pm starting in June. Cost for each camper is $140.00 a week for members and $160.00 a week for non-members of the swim club.
