Why do we choose to add swimming to your child’s camp day?
Studies show that swim lessons offer children many benefits including;
- decreased incidence of drowning
- increased fitness
- accelerated physical, intellectual and emotional development
- better balance, strength and coordination,
- increased social confidence
- swimming is a great activity for recreation that can be enjoyed by all ages.
In other words….swimming is good for children. After all, “You can’t find a better sport to save your life”!
Camp Swim Lesson
Each day at Action Kids Summer Camp, all campers receive a structured swim lesson, taught by our WSI trained Water Wonders Swim School Instructors.
Students are grouped by age and skill level during camp instructional swim time. We maintain low ratios in the pool, to ensure quality instruction and safety. Additionally during camp swim lessons there is always a lifeguard on duty. We make every possible effort to provide the daily swim lesson and free swim time; however, if swimming must be cancelled due to unsafe conditions we do not provide a make-up.
Our pool is heated and warm all summer long. Kids will love it!
On a typical summer camp day, campers have the opportunity to enjoy some free time in the pool. Open swim is a big hit with all the campers. Not only is it a chance to play, but also a great way to re-enforce the skills the campers learned in swim class! Open Swim is supervised by Red Cross Certified Lifeguards and Camp Staff.
For Summer 2020, in order to ensure the safety of our campers, and comply with CDC and State of NH guidelines, Open Swim will not run as usual. Instead of having a separate time for Open Swim, a designated “Free Swim” time will be incorporated into each camp group’s swim lesson.
The Open Swim ratio is 10:1, including certified lifeguards and camp staff.
Pool safety rules are reinforced daily. Weak/non swimmers are required to wear flotation devices while in Open Swim.
