What is Gym and Swim Summer Camp?
Gym and Swim offers many unique activities for your child. The camp day is 8:45 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Each week camp is structured around a theme, and the week's activities embrace that week's theme!
All campers will be placed into 2 groups. To begin the camp day, your child will be placed into a group with similar age campers. This group will travel to 3 different stations, which are Swim, Field and Canoe. Here is where all campers will learn and practice skills that will increase their confidence needed in team challenges. There is a simple formula for our challenges: Challenges + Theme= SUPER FUN!
Your camper will also be in a multi-level age team. Teams will compete with each other in challenges to earn points. This type of purposeful play encourages team building and problem solving skills. These intentional activities separate Gym and Swim from other camps. We also have trained counselors who add to the our camp's excitement. They help guide the development of our campers.
Gym and Swim counselors are leaders, who are not so far removed from being campers themselves. Gym and Swim at Sea Star is a fast-paced camp with the intent to grow leaders.
All of us here at Gym and Swim are excited about Summer 2021! Join us today!
Camps in the time of Covid-19: What you need to know about Gym and Swim
The Governor’s Executive Order No. 35 identifies the following groups: Bowling Alleys, Arcades, Climbing Gyms, Water Sports Activities, Golf Driving Ranges, Mini Golf Facilities, Shooting Ranges, Dance Classes, or other similar activities or venues that can achieve and maintain capacity and proximity limitations. These groups are permitted to operate provided they are:
- In groups of LESS than ten (10) persons.
- Such persons and groups maintain at least six (6) feet of separation from one another and avoid physical contact.

We will make changes as it becomes necessary to ensure the safest camp experience. Just know that camp WILL LOOK DIFFERENT!
