Aggie Camp B with Swim Lessons

Camp Day: 8:30 a.m.–3 p.m
A $175 / B $185 (unless noted otherwise) || Enroll Now

Aggie Camp B Swim is a unique camp that provides 45 minute swim lessons, Monday–Thursday, for ages 6–7. Campers will meet at the Rec Pool and go through the normal check-in process, starting at 8:30 a.m. They will be required to arrive at camp in a bathing suit and sunscreen, and must bring a set of clothes, including their camper shirts, to change into after the lesson. On Mondays, campers will be assessed as a group and placed into different levels based on our swim instructors’ evaluations. These lessons will encompass all levels of swimmers, from Batray (beginner) to Halibut (advanced). Campers will receive a swim report card at the end of the week. If a camper misses two or more days, they will not receive a report card, because there will not be enough time to develop and evaluate skills. Lessons will begin at 9:20 a.m. and end at 10:05 a.m., where they will change and begin camp activities. The campers will have opportunities to engage in fun indoor and outdoor activities that will help build self-confidence and friendships.

In addition to swim lessons, this camp will have recreational swimming on set days. The swim schedule will be included in the Parent Handbook, available in the spring. Campers who choose not to participate in recreational swimming will have an option for nonaquatic activities.
