  • All campers will be required to take a swim test the first time they swim.  The swim test is conducted by the lifeguards.  The swim test will require a child to tread water for 10 seconds, then a child must swim a half a length of the pool on their front side, then a child must float on their back for 10 seconds, and then swim back to the starting wall on their back.
  • If your child passes the test, they are given a colored wrist band.  This allows them to swim openly in the camper areas of the pool.  
  • If your child is unable to pass the swim test, he/she and must wear a Coast Guard approved personal floatation device that we will provide.  This child is restricted to designated areas of the pool.  
  • All campers will be swim tested before they are allowed to swim.  All swimmers will be tested the first time they swim.
