Improve your stroke and have serious fun at
Nike Swim Camp

The Williston Northampton School offers a beautiful campus with top-notch facilities in the Pioneer Valley that is a perfect location for camp. The School is located just five miles from downtown Northampton, and only two hours west of Boston in Massachusetts.

The Nike Swim Camp at the Williston Northampton School is designed to bring out the very best in every swimmer we coach. We accomplish this by providing ongoing constructive feedback during each pool session. Our ultimately goal is to help competitive swimmers improve their stroke technique and to gain confidence, in/and out of the pool, so they can compete at the next level.

This camp 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
  • Small group and individual stroke analysis/instruction
  • Fun evening social activities
  • Every camper receives a Nike Camp T-shirt and Nike Swim Cap
  • Every camper is eligible to receive merit-based prizes during camp

    So much fun!

    July 17, 2016: My daughter is an "older" (13 year old) new swimmer. She knew her strokes but had never competed in a swim meet. I had called the Nike phone line and they assured me this was ok and it was. She did great but it was intense for her at times.

    Thank you!

    July 16, 2016: The coaching staff provided great drills for the kids to do when they leave. They enforce proper form and technique throughout the camp. My daughter really liked how they had her write down her goals and then they evaluated them at the end of camp.

    Great quality camp!

    July 26, 2015: This was an incredible experience for my daughter. I’ve never heard the excitement about any camp or activity she has done in the past as we did with this camp. She now has a new spark for swimming and she can’t wait for her fall season to start.

    Improve your stroke techniques.
