Camp Setting

Located in the New England region of the United States, Fairfield University is situated on a pastoral campus offering scenic views of Long Island Sound.  Rolling hills, sprawling lawns, picturesque ponds, and bucolic wooded areas make it a setting ideal for camp.

The Nike Swim Camp at Fairfield University is open to any and all entrants. For your safety and benefit, we recommend you have competitive swimming experience (e.g. U.S.S. age group, national qualifiers, high school swimmers, or summer league swimmers) and can swim at least 50 meters in all four competitive strokes: fly, back, breast and freestyle.
