The goal of the Swim Camp is to teach and develop all four competitive strokes, starts, turns, and to provide campers with a rewarding and fun camp experience. A low camper-to-counselor ratio ensures that participants have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Each day of camp will focus on a different stroke. Monday will focus on freestyle, Tuesday will focus on backstroke, breaststroke on Wednesday, butterfly on Thursday, and on Friday, we will focus on starts and turns.
The morning session will focus on stroke technique. Campers will take what they learn from out-of-water instruction and apply it to their stroke, using a variety of drills and equipment. By practicing in smaller groups with campers of similar ability, campers will be able to receive immediate constructive feedback from their counselors and they will be able to learn from their peers.
The afternoon session will begin with either a mini-lecture or out-of-water games to enhance the campers’ sense of teamwork and cooperation. This will be followed by an additional session in the water to increase overall fitness with swimmers of similar ability.
By the end of the week, swimmers will have learned skills that they can apply and share with their other teams.
