Teaching our children to swim is a principal Jewish value and critical life skill, as it is a skill that will allow them to survive independently should the need arise.
The camp aquatics program focuses on skill development and water safety. Children work with Red Cross-certified instructors to become confident, safe, strong swimmers. Swim sessions run for 30 to 40 minutes, and provide quality instruction for new or experienced swimmers. All campers ages 4 and up are assessed at the beginning of each camp session to determine their appropriate level of instruction and are placed in swim groups accordingly. Please note that 3-year-old campers will swim exclusively in our training pool and will be required to wear swim diapers during all swim sessions. In addition, our 3- and 4-year-old campers will participate in water play activities on our rooftop playground.
