Swim Instruction

I choose camp for the swim program and it has met and surpassed my expectations.2019 Parent Survey


Campers in the Kreative Kangaroo Unit through Unit E receive swim instruction five days per week. Campers in Units F through GH can opt for swimming lessons as a daily activity. Campers learn and practice new skills by playing games such as Over/Under Limbo, Four Corners, Red Rover, and Sharks and Minnows. Our afternoon free swim sessions allow campers to gain confidence in the water and to practice and hone their skills, and many of our swim instructors join the campers in the pool each afternoon. 

Our private lesson program is designed to enhance and support the daily swim instruction. These thirty minute sessions are offered in the mornings from 8-9 AM and then again after camp from 3:00-4:30 PM. Many campers opt for private lessons once or twice per week, but some campers opt for more. We ask that lesson students please commit to a time for their duration at camp as lesson spots fill quickly, and we cannot have campers "dropping in" for lessons.

If you have questions about our swim program or would like to register your camper for private lessons, please send an email to pool@greenacres.org. This email address is active from June 1 through the end of camp each summer. We hope to see you at the pool!
