Former longtime Head Swim Coach, Brian Bishop, has designed a fantastic curriculum that will provide competitive swimmers with an exciting week at the Nike Swim Camp at The College of New Jersey. Campers will be challenged to improve their stroke technique through mental, technical, and physical training.

TCNJ’s Georgian Colonial campus occupies 289 landscaped acres in suburban Ewing, New Jersey. The College is approximately 5 miles from Trenton, the state capital, 10 miles from Princeton, and one hour from both Philadelphia and New York.

The Nike Swim Camp New Jersey 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
  • Every camper receives a Nike Camp T-shirt and Nike Swim Cap
  • Every camper is eligible to receive merit-based prizes during camp

    June 30, 2023: I feel like we learned so much while at camp. It was a great experience with a lot of responsibility to be in charge of our keys and keep our rooms clean. Even though we were in the pool so much, we still had a lot of fun especially at the movie night!
