Camp Rinconada

Camp Rinconada

Whether just learning to swim or developing strokes, your child receives a daily, 45-minute, level-appropriate lesson from a trained Swim School instructor (ratio 4:1). 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. Your child should come home healthy-tired but able to have loads of fun the entire week!
