5/19/14 Update: The Nike Swim Camp at Hillsdale College is completely sold out! We recommend our technique and training camp at Kalamazoo College being offered August 3-6th. Space is limited so reserve your spot today!
A detailed camper registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
Check-in takes place at 2:15pm on Sunday, July 6th. There will be a camp orientation meeting at 2:00pm and parents are welcome to join their campers for this meeting. A detailed schedule for the week will be provided at that time.

Roommates & Housing
Campers stay 2-per room in McIntyre Hall and are assigned by age and roommate requests. If you have a roommate request, and have not already given it to us, please do so no later than 10 days before the start of camp. After that, the request can't be guaranteed. If you don't have a roommate request, you will be placed in a room with someone near your age. Boys and girls are housed on seperate floors with gender specific counselors on them.

Jack McAvoy Natatorium
Campers train daily in the John "Jack" McAvoy Auditorium, home of the Chargers Swimming and Diving Team. The pool is a 6-lane, 25-yard x 25-meter race course.
This camp 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.
