I loved it!

I loved the camp even though I was very hesitant in the beginning because I was going on my own, couldn't find a friend to join since I came all the way from Lebanon. But I loved it anyways, and will come again if I have the chance.

Highlight of the summer!

 My experience at camp was amazing, it helped me see things I had never noiticed before. Like my stream line, Coach Wilson told me it wasnt very tight and I have been working to fix it since. Also I do butterfly and I felt it was good but the coaches noticed that I would burn a lot of energy and it was kind of jerky without much flow. So they recommended that I start a breathing to the side method and told me to rotate more. In no time at all my fly went from good to really great. Thanks Nike Swim Camp.

Best camp!

My daughter didn't know anyone at camp. She was nervous about making friends. They started off with a community building activity and the rest of the time was the same. She made many new friends and learned some great swim techniques as well! The social piece is essential in creating a safe learning environment.

Improve your stoke technique.

My daughter seemed to get good instruction and did get 2 state cuts in the meet right after swim camp. One in a stroke we did not expect her to get.

Thank you!

I LOVED CAMP! I will definitely go back next year to learn the material more thoroughly and become an even better swimmer that I have already become. Not only did I love the swimming but I also loved the activities we did after meals. The camp provided me the opportunity to make some great friends and truly was a wonderful experience. Thank you Nike Swim Camps!

Great camp!

It was great because it was stroke technique and fun at the same time. I felt liked I improved, and my times proved to have improved!

Thanks!

The experience was great for my son. It was his first time away at a camp and he enjoyed it very much. He liked the counselors, the other campers and his room.

Our daughter really enjoyed the camp. She felt it was the most fun camp she has done this summer!  We will consider having her do the "sleep over" camp next year. Thanks for the great camp!!!
