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.
New in 2014: Due to the popularity of our overnight camp, we have decided to make the July 6-10th session overnight only with the addition of a day-only camp the following week running Monday, July 14 through Thursday, July 17th. Both programs are designed for competitive swimmers and focus on stroke technique. We encourage all campers to register early as both sessions are expected to sell out by mid-April.
Overnight Camp (July 6-10)
Check-in takes place between 1:30-2:30pm on Sunday, July 6th at Travers Hall Lounge. There will be a camp orientation meeting at 2:30pm and parents are welcome to join their campers for this meeting. A detailed schedule for the week will be provided at that time.
A closing ceremony will be held at 11:00am in the pool area, immediately following the swim meet on Thursday, July 10th. Parents are invited to attend the meet which starts at 9:00am on the 10th.
Housing & Roommates
Campers stay 2 per room and are assigned by age and roommate requests. If you don't have a roommate request, you will be placed in a room with someone near your age. It will be a great opportunity to meet someone new! Boys and girls are housed on seperate floors with gender specific counselors on them.
