Our Swim Programming
What strikes that perfect balance between a small park-like camp for our younger campers and the benefits of some "big kid" camp offerings? Our heated inground pool!
Whether your child has mastered swimming or is a fearful beginner, we will teach your child how to enjoy the water safely in our heated pool. Small groups of campers swim and play together with a C.P.R. and First Aid certified lifeguard and swim instructors.
We also make time for some "free" time in the pool as well. The goal is to build a comfort level with the water, while learning an essential skill. A leveled pool including 2 foot- 4 foot areas, as well as Greentrees counselors who are trained in pool supervision and water safety, facilitates an amazing opportunity for each camper.
Private Swim Lessons
During the summer season, Greentrees is pleased to offer private one-on-one swimming lessons (ages 2-7) after camp hours with Red Cross Instructors. These 25-30 minute lessons help campers develop a feeling of safety, a level of confidence, and, hopefully, a lifelong love of the water, while emphasizing swim skills that will keep them challenged and motivated.
