At Nike Swim Camp we believe persistence
is more important than perfection

USSC is excited to be back at the University of Colorado Boulder this coming summer to host a Nike Swim 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 and 24 hour supervision
  • 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

    Friendly coaches!

    June 20, 2017: My daughter was nervous before we got there as we are from Pennsylvania and she wouldn't know anyone. The moment we walked into the courtyard of the dormitory we were greeted by the camp director and introduced to all the counselors and coaches. She made friends and had a blast. We are planning to come back again next year.

    Seconds off 50 free!

    June 15, 2017: My son just started swimming 9 months before the camp and he was 2 1/2 seconds of the State qualifying time for the 50 free. In a meet 2 weeks after the camp he had taken 3 seconds off his 50 and made the State cut. But in my son's words: "I am passing people I never passed before at practice!!!"

    Came home more confident!

    June 11, 2017: Our daughter came home more confident in her swimming and incredibly proud of her work and her effort. She learned about the importance of nutrition and about body positioning. She loved the drills, the evening activities and everything about the program. It was life changing!

    Felt so welcomed!

    June 10, 2017: My son said the highlight of camp was not only the instruction, but the coaches and friends made. The coaches did a great job of making sure everyone was included and welcomed.  His times also improved noticeable after camp!

    Had a blast!

    June 15, 2016: My daughter and son had a blast! They worked hard, but had time to make friends and relax. In addition to great instruction, they felt like part of the group and supported by coaches.  Such a good feling for a parent!
