Camp Rinconada

Camp Rinconada

Camp Rinconada is the perfect summer option for kids looking to stay busy and swim a little. A child’s swim level is assessed on the first day of camp, and campers with similar abilities are grouped together. More advanced swimmers also get a workout-style swim session in a 25-yard format to practice what they have learned. Daily hands-on lessons in small focused groups invariably lead to rapid advancement in a child’s swim skills.
In addition to swim instruction, campers have daily swim-related workouts, free swim, time for land and camp games, crafts, and lunch. Campers participate in making tie-die shirts and cap off the week with a Relay Race on Friday followed by a group photo! Your child should come home healthy-tired, but able to have loads of fun the entire week!

Safety Protocols For COVID-19
Camps will be carried out in stable groups of 12 or fewer children (“stable” means that the same 12 or fewer children are in the same group each day and for at least three consecutive weeks).
