University of Vermont
Burlington is one of America's most beautiful and liveliest small cities (population: 40,000), and it charms with its proximity to Vermont's idyllic countryside. UVM's setting on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and the Green mountain ranges, provides an idyllic location to host a Nike Camp.
The Nike Swim Camp at the University of Vermont 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.
