Improve your stroke and have serious fun at
Nike Swim Camp

Located in Burlington, Vermont, the University of Vermont's setting in a valley on the shores of Lake Champlain, between the Adirondack and the Green mountain ranges, provides an inspiring location for camp. This location is ideal for all regional swimmers in the New England area with the campus a short trip from Boston, New York and Montreal.

The Nike Swim Camp at the University of Vermont 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. Campers train daily at the Forbush Natatorium, located in the Patrick Gymnasium/Gutterson Fieldhouse Athletic Complex, the home pool of the Vermont women's swimming and diving program.

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.

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

    Great experience!

    The camp provided my daughter many tools that she can use towards her training, in and out of the pool. She loved how the coaches also taught them about the mental aspect of competitive swimming. The individualized stroke technique/starts/turns instruction was excellent. She enjoyed all of the smiling coaches and positivity they brought to the camp sessions each day. She absolutely loved the town of Burlington and the campus/facilities at UVM. She also connected with new friends from other states.

    Loved having a whole new swim experience!

    This was the first time my daughter has stayed overnight somewhere for more than one night without my or my husband, and was only willing to stay overnight because her two friends were attending the camp as well. The two other girls' moms and I are very appreciative that the girls were allowed to share a dorm room. Otherwise, they would have not stayed over. So, thank you! My daughter raved about the food and loved how much swimming there was and said her skills definitely improved. She also loved free time, going to the UVM bookstore, and playing games with the counsellors. I asked them if they wanted to attend next summer and they all said, "YES!" So it looks like they'll be back in 2018! Thank you again for a GREAT first overnight camp experience for my daughter. I'm so appreciative.

    Friendly coaches!

    My son appreciated getting personalized written feedback from counselors about each of his strokes. The counselors were very friendly and encouraging, they even fave my son was getting "high fives" as he was leaving the camp. My son enjoyed the organized games every night from 7:00 - 9:00 pm.

    Welcoming coaches!

    Our daughter was terribly homesick the first few days but the counselors helped her succeed and spend every night by camp.  Thank you for being so kind to her and making her feel as welcomed! She came home more confident and with great new friends!

    SO fun!

    A highlight of camp was playing games outside, starts and turns sessions, making friends, and doing drills in the water.  Camp was so much fun!

    Loved camp!

    My kids loved sleeping in the dorms with a friend, camp counselor coaches, and technique development and tips.  No changed needed for this great program, keep up the good work!

    Great skill refinement!

    This was my son's first year and he couldn't believe how much he learned and how much he improved in such a short time. I think concentrating on skill refinement, rather than only building endurance was important.

    Great opportunity!

    Different coaching was greatly needed for a swimmer that has been with the same coach for many years.  Thank you for the great opportunity to gain skills and improve on old ones!

    Awesome fun!

    Our son loved staying in the dorms, making new swim friends, and clear teaching of technique.  He loved this camp and will return for sure! Thanks to the camp director Coach Cournoyer!

    I look forward to it all year!

    I have been coming to swim camp at IBM with coach Gerry for several years now and I look forward to it all year. The coaches make it fun while really adjusting your technique with drill work to get your muscle memory involved. I see improvements every year.

    Great Experience!

    My 11 year daughter had a great experience at The Nike Swim Camp. This was her first sleep away camp experience, and it was fun, safe and she learned a great deal. We would highly recommend these camps. She will likely return next year.

    Wonderful experience!

    Our son looks forward to this camp each year. Each year he gathers another friend or two from his home swim team to go along just by him telling everyone what a great time he has. We travel three hours each way for him to attend because he has such a great time and the coaches are so amazing with him. It is a wonderful experience for him each summer.

    Great time!

    It was a great experience. Unlike most camps they improved my technique, and weren't as focused on speed. They did something that can help me for my whole swimming career, not just one weeks workout.

    I will definitely be back.

    I was extremely impressed with the Nike Swim Camp at the University of Vermont. I have been to other camps in the past and nothing compares to this camp. I will definitely come back next year.

    Planning on next year

    I enjoyed the swim camp a lot. It was my first experience in a swim camp and I want to repeat it soon. My parents think it was worth the experience and worth the time spent on this activity. We are already making plans to attend this camp next year.
