Improve your stroke and have serious fun at
Nike Swim Camp

The campus is located in historic Walla Walla in the scenic southeastern corner of Washington, 2.5 hours from Spokane, four hours from Portland, and 4.5 hours from Seattle.

Campers train each day at the Baker Ferguson Fitness Center in the Louise and Paul Harvey Pool. The Center is a 38,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that opened in the fall of 2006. Located north of Cordiner Hall at the corner of Park and Main streets, the facility features a sparkling 30-meter swimming pool with eight competitive lanes and three practice lanes. 

The Nike Swim Camp at Whitman College 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.

Highlights Include
  • Stroke technique refinement for competitive swimming
  • Low camper to staff ratio and 24 hour supervision
  • Underwater videotaping and on-deck review with coaches

    Loved every aspect of camp!

    My son loved every aspect of this camp. On one of the "outings" between pool sessions, he bought a little notebook and took notes on all the techniques he learned. He also enjoyed the dry land sessions and looks forward to incorporating some of the exercises into his training.

    Perfect your stroke technique.

    Nike swim camp is a great way to perfect your strokes and meet other swimmers from around the world. Highly recommend for swimmers of all ages and abilities. Loved being video taped and seeing my strokes underwater.

    Plan to return next year.

    The camp was a lot of fun! I also learned a lot by the way they broke down the strokes and from the video taping. I plan to return next year.
