Nike Swim Camp at York College of Pennsylvania
Don't Count Laps. Make Every Lap Count.
At Nike Swim Camp
This summer the Nike Swim Camp in Eastern PA is being offered at York College of Pennsylvania which is easily accessible for swimmers from Lancaster, Baltimore, Philadelphia and beyond. With only two sessions offered, the stroke technique program is expected to sell out quickly so swimmers and teams are encouraged to register early.
York College's staff want to push you to new heights this summer through innovative stroke refinement drills and dry-land conditioning. Instruction and daily activities take place in York’s new Grumbacher Sports and Fitness center while overnight campers reside in the air-conditioned Northside Commons and enjoy 3 nutritious meals per day in the nearby Johnson Dining Room.
The Nike Swim Camp at York College 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.
- Stroke technique refinement for competitive swimming
- Low camper to staff ratio and 24 hour supervision
- Every camper receives a Nike Camp T-shirt and Nike Swim Cap
- Every camper is eligible to receive merit-based prizes during camp

In his first year at Hopkins, the men’s and women’s swim teams placed 4th and 5th, respectively, at the NCAA Championships. The women’s team’s finish was remarkable in that there were only 8 women’s team members qualified for the meet, out of a possible 18. In 2017, the Men’s team again placed 4th and women’s team scored another Top-10 finish at 9th. Evan Holder won the 2017 NCAA title in a new NCAA Record of 1:36.42, and placed 2nd in the 200 IM with the 2nd fastest performance in Division III history with a 1:44.90.
Nick has worked numerous swim camps throughout the country, including camps at UVA, Stanford and Johns Hopkins.
