Questions? Call us! 1-800-645-3226

Over the past 15 summers the Arizona swim camp has successfully helped over 1,700 competitive swimmers improve their stroke technique.

The Arizona Nike Swim Camp has moved to the University of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff! Instead of training in the desert heat this summer, join us in the mountains for cooler temperatures, awesome facilities and a taste of training at altitude (6,900 feet)! It is commonly known that training at altitude - where the oxygen level is considerably lower - allows athletes to increase their red blood cell count. This enables swimmers to compete more effectively at sea level because more oxygen is delivered to the muscles. Adaptation and results will vary.

Campers will train each day in the new Wall Aquatic Center, located in the Aquatic and Tennis Complex. The center offers Northern Arizona University and the Flagstaff community one of the finest high-altitude swimming facilities in the world.

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

    Amazing Camp!

    June 18, 2018: Coaches were incredible and I came away with so many new skills and drills to bring back to my home team. The practices with the coaches were challenging and rewarding. The dry-land training was amazing and I learned new stretches and how this type of training could improve my swimming. Lunch was also amazing and the food overall was delicious.

    Best week of our son's life!

    June 22, 2017: My son, just finished a week of camp in AZ. I felt compelled to write to you to share what an incredible experience it was for him. First, you need to know him a bit to understand why this was so great. He swims with a very small team that is falling apart and hasn't had a really qualified coach for over a year. Parents on deck is the closest we have had to a real coach. With that said, he and a couple of other kids remain determined to swim and compete. Our entire extended family wanted to honor and support his dedication to the sport by gifting him this experience at your camp. Boy, were we surprised at what he got to experience! Even signing up at the front door was fun as we were greeted by every single staff member. They were so gracious and welcoming. One coach saw our son's hesitation to leave us and he came over and warmly encouraged him. The week consisted of truly excellent practices, opportunities to hear from exceptional swimmers, eating with athletes, and once in a lifetime opportunities to be coached by the best. Our son came home and thanked us for the best week of his life!!

    Love coming back each summer!

    June 22, 2017: Camp was a great combination of stroke development work and fun (like the kick ball game). My daughter's favorite experiences were meeting a new, great friend in her roommate and meeting the wonderful staff. This was my daughter's third year at the swim camp and she can't wait to go back next year!

    I recommend this camp to anyone!

    June 16, 2016: The Nike Swim Camp was overall a great experience for me. I had a lot of fun and made a ton of new friends! The instructors were really kind and worked hard to make sure every swimmer had a great camp experience! Although I was expecting more individualized stroke technique, I still picked up a lot of good tips that will make me a better swimmer. I recommend this camp to anyone, no matter their ability level. I hope to return next year!

    Just what we needed!

    Loved it!

    June 11, 2015: What I love about this camp for my swimmer is it builds confidence; improves their abilities; and gives them a chance to swim with other campers with similar goals and see what it takes to be on a college team or even shoot for the Olympics.

    Great first experience!

    June 9, 2014: This was our granddaughter's first experience at a Nike Swim Camp. We felt it was a very professionally run camp. At first we were hesitant sending her off to the dorms, but the supervision was excellent and the camp was well run from start to finish. She made lots of friends and learned a lot about herself and her swimming. Thank you!

    Not just a swim camp!

    June 15, 2013: The Nike swim camp is not just a swim camp, it's more than that, you will meet new friends, meet new people you can compete against and help you become faster. The instructor are really helpful, if you need help with something on your stroke, they will find a way to help the best way possible!
