    Highly recommend this camp!

    July 14, 2016: The Nike Swim Camp had a lot of activities and workouts that had us working hard. It helped me with a lot of my technique and my different strokes. I learned a lot about how my different strokes could have been changed to be better for a faster swim. I do recommend this camp.

    Very pleased!

    June 22, 2015: This was our first Nike Camp and my daughter was very pleased with her experience. The training was "just enough", not too overwhelming and more importantly the campers were nice, friendly and inviting. My only criticism would be "we wanted the program to be longer".

The camp overall is well planned with things to do, great staff, and amazing stories! As team captain of his high school swim team he is making all efforts to have his team partake in the wonderful experience he has had at the Nike camp and encourage them to join in on the fun! Thank you to everyone through the years that made my son more amazing at swim and of being part of a priceless experience and friends for a lifetime!!

    Memorable experience!

    Great dryland workouts!

    June 28, 2017: My son seemed to enjoy the whole camp. He enjoyed hanging out the boys (even though a small portion of the campers were male). He liked dry land even though he said it was harder than he typical does.

    • 5/5.
    Great camp!

    June 28, 2017: Wonderfully fun & challenging. The coaches were amazing & knowledgeable. My daughter had an absolute blast and learned so much from just 4 days. We can't thank the coachs & camp enough!

    — Adam D. Parent

    • 5/5.
    Noticeable improvement!

    June 28, 2017: Each one of my son's strokes improved dramatically in a very short time. He also had a great time and could see his hard work payoff almost immediately!

    — Jay H. Parent

    • 5/5.
    Great experience!

    June 30, 2017: At first my son was concerned there would be too much swimming. Once he got there, he found that the coaches and overall staff made the days go quickly and he had a great experience. He enjoyed training with a variety of ages and I think swimming with the older kids camp him a chance to push himself. He will go again next year, maybe even as an overnighter. it was a great experience for him.

    — Jessica S. Parent

    • 5/5.
    Loved it!

    July 12, 2017: My daughter loved the technical work on strokes. There was a nice balance of work and fun and although she went with some swim team friends, she came home with some new friends as well! It will be fun for her to see them at club meets in the future.

    — Gary P. Parent

    • 5/5.
    Wonderful Time!

    July 14, 2017: This was my daughter's first experience at a sleep-away camp and she had a wonderful time. She met new friends and said it was the most intense work-out she's ever had. The drills were broken down step-by-step which enabled her to grasp it more quickly and apply the techniques. The coaches were very encouraging and gave real-time feedback. It was just the right level of direction for her. She met a really nice group of girls -- which elevated the experience for her. It gave her a real sense of independence. I hope they run this program next year (same dates and location) as I would definitely send her back.

    Can't Wait To Go Back!

    July 2, 2018: My 10 year old daughter loved the Nike Swim Camp! Her new friends made it fun and enjoyable while working on her swim strokes. It was her first time attending this camp and she already wants to return next year for two weeks and the sleepover!

    — Laura S., Parent

    • 5/5.
    Loved Every Second of Camp!

    July 23, 2019: I loved every second of this camp! I learned so many tips to help all of my strokes. I can’t wait to use what I learned in my upcoming swim season in the fall. I also can’t wait to go back next year!

    — Logan M. Camper

    • 5/5.
    Thanks for a great 4 days! 

    July 9, 2021: My son had a great time, with take always each day. Although butterfly isn’t his preferred stroke he felt he made great improvements. Enjoyed watching the time trials at the end.. wish the time boards were working because of course he couldn’t remember his times! He looked great though and had fun. Wish there was another session! Thanks for a great 4 days!

    wishes camp didn’t have to come to an end

    July 9, 2021: My son had fun, learned some new techniques. He enjoyed the interaction with his coaches and wishes camp didn’t have to come to an end. The one thing he truly missed this year was the sleepover experience and it seems like he didn’t have many other kids at a similar experience level. Overall he loved it and will be back again next year.

    — Michelle H., Parent

    • 5/5.
    looks forward to coming every year!!

    July 2, 2021: Although she was disappointed this year wasn't "sleep-away" swim camp, she came home every day smiling and talking about everything she did that day. She had fun, she was challenged and she learned a couple new techniques to better her strokes. Thank you Nike Swim Camp - she looks forward to coming every year!!
