Swim lesson SueWhy do we choose to add swimming to your child’s camp day?  

Studies show that swim lessons offer children many benefits including;

  • decreased incidence of drowning
  • increased fitness
  •  accelerated physical, intellectual and emotional development
  • better balance, strength and coordination,
  • increased social confidence
  • swimming is a great activity for recreation that can be enjoyed by all ages.

In other words….swimming is good for children.  After all, “You can’t find a better sport to save your life”!

Camp Swim Lesson

Each day at Action Kids Summer Camp, all campers receive  a structured swim lesson, taught by our WSI trained Water Wonders Swim School Instructors.
Students are grouped by age and skill level during camp instructional swim time.  We maintain low ratios  in the pool, to ensure quality instruction and safety.  Additionally during camp swim lessons there is always a  lifeguard on duty. Although, we make every possible effort to provide the daily swim lesson and free swim time, however, if swimming must be cancelled due to unsafe conditions we do not provide a make-up.

Our pool is heated and warm all summer long. Kids will love it!

Open Swim

Each afternoon,  all full day campers have the opportunity to “cool off in the pool”! Open swim is a big hit with all the campers, not only is it a chance to play, but also a great way to re-enforce the  skills they learned in  swim class. Open Swim is supervised by Red Cross Certified Lifeguards and Camp Staff.

The Open Swim ratio is 10:1, including 3 certified lifeguards and camp staff.
Pool safety rules are reinforced daily. Weak/non swimmers are required to wear flotation devices while in Open Swim.
If your child does not want to participate in open swim we offer supervised quiet activities at our shaded Creation Station.
