Swimming Fun at Camp

Girl in Pool

We are committed to providing all campers starting at age 3 all the way up to 2nd grade with an exceptional instructional swim experience. The foundation of our program is based on the principles and methods that promote water safety and teach campers how to swim.

Safety is the Top Priority

For our youngest swimmers in Camp Bami and Kinder Camp, each instructor will work with a maximum of eight children. A counselor will also be in the pool with each group, providing a 1:4 ratio of staff to child supervision at all times. In addition, there will always be at least two lifeguards on duty specifically to supervise the Kinder Camp and Camp Bami swim programs. For our older, more experienced swimmers (grades 1+) who participate in instructional swim, the ratio is generally 1:6 with additional supervision by our American Red Cross certified lifeguards.

Class Information

Our program is progressive; each skill builds on the skills mastered in the previous levels. To ensure quality programming, it is necessary to successfully complete each level in the progression. Essential swim and safety skills are taught in each level.

For our more advanced swimmers in our traditional day camps, instructional swim is designed to prepare campers to pass the required swim test to use the slide, diving board and rock wall.
