Children will swim on a daily basis, weather permitting. Swim lasts 30 minutes and in most cases will occur in the afternoon hours. Swimming lessons for rising Pre K – 2nd graders are included in the price of their camp and done weekly weather permitting. Swimming lessons for rising 3rd – 8th graders are available at an additional cost and are done in 2 week sessions (weeks 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 & 7-8). Children receive two lessons per week during their swim period. Lessons will be taught according to the American Red Cross Water Safety Instruction program.
“Deep Water Swim” Assessment
Before campers can swim in water greater than chest deep they must have their swimming ability assessed, in accordance with the NYS Department of Health this must happen every year. If your camper has passed their test one year and come back the next they MUST be tested again. Campers only need to be assessed if they want to swim in water greater than chest deep. Please note that if your camper fails their deep water test the first time they will be able to test again each week they are at camp. If you do not want your camper to have the opportunity to be retested please let us know.
To determine if a camper is a “deep water swimmer” they must complete the following assessment with no breaks:
1) Enter water greater than chest deep and completely go underwater
2) Tread Water for 1 minute
3) Maintain position on back for 1 minute
4) Swim 40 yards using any stroke/combination of strokes. Dog paddle is not acceptable.
5) Spin 360 degrees & orient to the exit
6) Exit water safety
These campers are designated with a “deep water swimmer” swim band during camp. Campers MUST have their swim bands to swim in the deep end of the pool. There is a charge of $1.00 to replace lost swim bands.
