SECURE YOUR SPOT NOW! LIMITED AVAILABILITY FOR THIS 2024 SWIM CAMP!

We're excited to be back at the University of Colorado Boulder this coming summer to host a Nike Swim Camp! Coach Kelly McClanahan and her staff provide competitive swimmers excellent instruction and training with an emphasis on stroke technique. Our goal is to create a fun, exciting and enthusiastic environment for each swimmer at camp.

Located only 30 minutes outside Denver with an elevation of 5,430, competitive swimmers from Colorado and beyond can train and improve their strokes at the CU Recreation Center, a 25 yard x 8 lane pool located in the middle of campus. Overnight campers reside in campus housing located a short walk from the pool and eat all meals in the campus dining hall.

The Nike Swim Camp at the University of Colorado, Boulder 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
  • 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
