Returning Campers New Campers

Our lifeguards and specialists are certified professionals who are able to differentiate their instruction for all levels and abilities. Campers are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone as they challenge themselves to try new things and improve their skills.

Our activities and programs are created with thoughtfulness and intention to promote skill building, guided risk taking, teamwork, friendship, and fun. In addition to our daily schedule, campers will participate in special events, late nights, and special dress-up days related to our exciting weekly themes.
