Swimsport Camp interests

Let your child experience all the fun and adventure of sailing this summer! Campers who select the Sailing interest will spend the majority of each afternoon on the Charles River learning to sail. They will learn knots used in sailing, how to rig a boat, points of sail, and boating safety, and spend time learning sailing technique. Note: In order to participate, campers must be at a level 4 swimming status as recommended by the American Red Cross Standards and as evaluated by our Aquatics staff.
Give your child the chance to master the lifelong skill of swimming this summer with our Swimming interest. Intended to improve swimming skills and technique, the Swimming interest includes two daily swim lessons with our certified swim instructors.
Is your child already a great swimmer and looking to improve? If so, the Competitive Swimming interest is for him or her! Campers will swim twice daily and receive instruction on stroke technique, refinement of starts and turns, and endurance building. Campers will also meet with coaches to discuss topics such as nutrition, racing strategies, sports psychology, and injury prevention—all with an underlying focus on the joys of swimming! Sessions will conclude with a mock meet, and campers will receive a video filmed underwater with stroke and technique analysis. Note: Participants must be able to swim 50 yards of all four competitive strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle.
We’re excited to introduce our new Rock Climbing interest for the summer of 2016!  These one-week camps are available for children ages 12-15, regardless of their rock climbing experience. In addition to having more time on the rock wall, FitRock campers will learn and practice crucial foundational climbing techniques – instruction will cover efficient movement, belay training, coping with fear, and risk management skills for indoor and outdoor settings.  Campers will also enjoy swimming, yoga, and court sports in the Fitness Center. The major highlight of the climbing interest is the outdoor climbing component.  The FitRock camp will culminate with a day trip to one our own beautiful New England outdoor climbing destination, during which the campers will work with our expert outdoor instructors to rope climb, boulder, and experience the joy of outdoor recreation. 
Sign your child up to experience the exciting world of dance this summer! The Dance Arts interest is for dancers of all levels, and participants will hone their technical dance skills, create original choreography, and improve their dance performance skills. Campers will be placed in classes based on experience and ability and will have daily instruction in ballet, modern, yoga/stretching, jazz, hip-hop, and special classes like Zumba and West African dance. Recreational swimming, rock climbing, and arts & crafts will also be included as part of the Dance Arts interest experience.

No tuition refunds after May 9, 2016. In order to receive the FitRec Family membership discount, membership must be purchased prior to the start of camp and be in effect while the camper is registered

This camp must comply with regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (105 CMR 430.000) and be licensed by the City of Boston board of health.
