Youth Programs & Camps
Discover Aquatics Camps

Calling all water lovers! Join us for our full-day aquatic camp! Participants in this camp will spend their day bubbling around the pool, discovering a wide range of aquatic programs (including Lifesaving Sport, Synchronized Swimming, Diving, Innertube Waterpolo, Swimming Lessons, and much more)! When they're not in the water they will be learning life-saving first aid skills, making crafts (think: slime, homemade geodes, and tie-dye shirts), and/or playing activities outside (who doesn't love a good water balloon fight)!
