Performance is our passion at
Peak Performance Swim Camps

This Rocky Mountain destination is sure to be a camper favorite this summer! With performance as our passion our camps focus on maximizing swimming potential through a holistic, three-sided approach focused on mental, technical, and physical conditioning.

In order for a swimmer to realize their full swimming potential they must be mentally, technically and physically fit. Contrary to popular belief, physical fitness by itself is not enough. A swimmer must also possess a high degree of mental and technical fitness.

At Peak Performance we pride ourselves in offering a balance between physical, technical and mental training. Peak 1 offers a 75/25 blend of physical and technical conditioning while Peak 2 offers a 50/50 blend of physical and technical conditioning. In addition, this camp offers an in-depth mental conditioning curriculum designed to enhance a swimmer's self-esteem, develop focus skills and improve the ability to perform in stressful situations.

Camp Details

The vast majority of competitive swimmers are in serious need of concentrated start, turn, and stroke work. It should be an ongoing process that continues throughout their swimming careers. Skills are never permanent and require constant attention and refinement. At Peak Performance Swim Camp, we offer a variety of impactful techniques and skill progressions that dramatically improve start, turn, and stroke techniques. The techniques taught are extremely adaptable meaning swimmers can continue to use them upon returning to their home pools.

Open to swimmers ages 11-18 who train 5,000 yards/meters (or greater) per practice.

PEAK 1 is our most challenging camp. It is well suited for accomplished senior-level swimmers and elite-level age group swimmers. Participants must be mentally, technically, and physically prepared to endure the rigors of 4 hours of in-water training per day plus 1 hour of dry-land training per day. Approximately 75% of the total pool time is dedicated to physical conditioning; however, all sets include significant mental and technical expectations.

Rather than offer a series of generic training sets, each practice is created to reflect the group’s needs and talent level. In addition, we do not condone garbage yardage or mindless meters. Each lap of practice must have purpose!

All-together PEAK 1 includes: 9 challenging in-water training sessions, 4 dry-land training sessions, 3-4 yoga sessions, and 4 mental conditioning sessions.

Note: Peak 1 is not well suited for swimmers with swimming related injuries.


Open to swimmers ages 8-18 who train between 3,000 to 5,000 yards/meters per practice.

PEAK 2 offers a 50/50 blend of technical and physical conditioning and well suited for medium to elite-level age group swimmers who have qualified for top age group competition in their state/province. Participants must possess the maturity and discipline to handle 4 hours of in-water training per day plus 1 hour of dry-land training per day. In addition, they must exhibit a high degree of technical competency and physical fitness. Participants must be able to perform all four competitive strokes and turns and the three competitive starts (front, back, relay).

Rather than offer a series of generic training sets, each practice is created to reflect the group’s needs and talent level. In addition, we do not condone garbage yardage or mindless meters. Each lap of practice must have purpose!

All-together PEAK 2 includes: 9 challenging in-water training sessions, 4 dry-land training sessions, 3-4 yoga sessions, and 4 mental conditioning sessions.

Camp Check-in and Orientation, for both swimmers and parents, will take place at the CU Recreation Center Pool. Swimmers will start camp immediately following check-in, and should arrive to camp wearing swimsuits underneath their dry-land clothing.

  • PEAK 1 CAMP: Monday • August 6 • 7:15 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
  • PEAK 2 CAMP: Monday • August 6 • 7:15 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.

If private coaching was purchased in advance with camp registration, swimmers will be assigned appointed dates/times and the schedule will be posted at Camp Check-In. Please note that Private Coaching sessions are scheduled around the coaches’ availability (between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.) and may be subject to change due to weather and/or pool conditions.

Camp concludes with our special Gold Medal Award Ceremony conducted near the pool deck. Parents are invited to attend and should plan to pick-up their children promptly afterwards. After the ceremony, overnight campers may then proceed to the hotel to pick-up their luggage.

    Amazing camp!

    February 2, 2017: Kyle looks great thanks to you. He dropped 4 seconds in his 200 IM. He's also got his dive back. Audrey is doing amazing since her visit. She took first place the 100 FL this past weekend. Max dropped another 3 seconds in his 100 BR. The kids think you're the best coach in the world.

    Thanks so much!

    January 31, 2017: We really appreciate your camp program and feel like Jenna learns so much each time she attends. The moment she returned home from her last visit she started to mentor her teammates on your Swim Positive philosophy. I also take pleasure in watching her remove her Swim Positive wristband before a race and giving it to the timer for safekeeping.

    Very impressed.

    January 29, 2017: Once again, thank you so much for the wonderful time at your winter camp. Max was so happy when he returned home and has since improved in all of his times. He recently dropped 16 seconds in his 400 IM. It was a great pleasure to watch you and your staff in action.

    Great camp!

    January 23, 2016: We had our Georgia Age Group Long Course State Meet this past weekend. I had a great meet! I knocked 5 seconds off my 100 FL for first place and a AAAA Time. I also finished first in my 50 FL with another AAAA Time. All together I had 9 out of 10 best times. I came away with 7 AAAA Times and placed fourth or better in all ten races. I also took home the Long Course High Point award. I feel like I learned so much in camp and took away a lot of valuable information. I swam in a meet the weekend before the camp and had almost all best times. Coming back from camp, I wasn't expecting to get a lot of best times. Boy was I wrong! Thanks again for such a great camp.

    Simply amazing!

    January 5, 2016: Simply amazing! My son attended your Camp in Orlando this past winter and I could not believe the change in him. He arrived home late on Friday and attended a local swim meet on Saturday and Sunday. Both my husband and I were shocked when we saw him swim. His strokes and turns were amazing. He looked effortless and beat everyone off the walls. All this is just one week! He dropped a total of 39 seconds in 6 events. No small feat for a swimmer who qualified for Zones last summer. We were also taken aback by his attitude. He couldn't stop smiling or talking about the camp. You gave our son an entirely new lease on swimming. You are an amazing coach and we can't thank you enough. My son will be back next summer with a number of his teammates.
