Camp Time at the Pool
We swim most days, during public swim time, when the pool is busy. This can mean a challenging swimming environment for the kids. If lifeguards or camp leaders have any concerns about your child's ability to swim without a lifejacket, they may be asked to do a swim test. If after a swim test, lifeguards ask a child to wear a lifejacket, the child will not be allowed to swim without one. Please talk to the camp leaders if you have concerns about your child's swimming ability.
