Improve your stoke technique and get better this summer!

I would recommend the Nike swim camp at Franklin & Marshall to any teen who is interested in improving their techniques and timing. The counselors were knowledgeable, caring and patient. As a first time experience for our child, we felt she was safe, well cared for and given helpful instruction.

Can't wait to go again!

This was my daughter's 1 overnight camp experience (10 yrs old). When I left her at camp I felt the team they had was very capable and I was happy for her to have the experience. She loved it and can not wait to go again next year!
