In addition to the core counselors, we have qualified lifeguards and Water Safety Instructors to supervise and instruct the campers.
For Summer 2023, we will offer instructional swim as well as recreational swim if allowed by State and Board of Health regulations and guidance regarding pools. If we can not offer pool time, or if we can not accommodate all campers each day, we will add other water play so campers can stay cool while having fun.What if my child doesn’t want to swim?

All campers must be signed in and out each day. Please watch for direction about this year's procedures before camp starts.What is your discipline policy?
We don’t look at discipline as a punishment. Instead, we focus on logical consequences to de-escalate the situation to prevent harm to themselves and others; work with the camper and his/her family to prevent future situations
