Summer fun at Swimsport Camp

The Swimsport Camp is for children entering Grades 3 through 8 (the climbing focus is for kids through grade 10). Activities include: swimming, sailing, soccer, basketball, rock climbing, and more, taught by our qualified and dedicated instructors. In addition, campers go on a variety of field trips and attend special in-house events. In addition to participating in these activities, each Swimsport camper selects an interest to focus on during each session. The interests are: Sailing, Swimming, Competitive Swimming, Rock Climbing, and Dance Arts. This structure allows campers to experience a variety of activities, while also spending time focusing on a single activity.

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.
These two-week camps are available for children ages 11-15, 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 day trips to beautiful New England outdoor climbing destinations, 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 1, 2017. 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
