What is a typical day at camp like?
From 9:30-12:00 pm campers rotate through sports stations. Each day they will skip a sport to ensure that they have their snack time each day. 12:00-1:00pm is our break time for lunch. Half day campers are dismissed between 12:30 and 1:00pm. The afternoon consists of free play and game time in the gym and swim time. The younger campers swim first while the older campers have gym time, and then it switches. After swim time campers prepare to go home for the day.
Are campers grouped by age?
Yes. The number of campers in each age group determines how campers will be grouped. For example, if there are not enough 5 year olds to make a group, they will be grouped with the 6 year olds. 7-8 year olds are grouped together, etc.. If any -one age group is large enough it will have its own group.

Swim time is a free swim. There is no formal instruction by the counselors. During the summer session you do have the option of registering online for Dynamo Swim lessons up until the first week in May.

Campers who cannot swim are given a life jacket and are required to stay in the shallow end of the pool. Campers who want to swim in the deep end are required to take the swim test before they are allowed to swim in the deep end.

There are counselors stationed around the pool deck and 2 life guards on duty during pool time for the younger and older camper. Counselors are not required to swim with campers, but they do have that option as long as there are enough counselors on the pool deck.
