Our camp swim program is a true highlight of camp. Our swim program offers fun and confidence for all swimmers, experienced and inexperienced.
Dwight Summer Day Camp will offer 4 swimming sessions a week at our DSAC Facility. Click here to check it out!
Our 25-yard swimming pool has 6 lanes and 3 diving boards. Located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, campers will be transported using Dwight Summer Camp transportation. Our instructors are experienced in working with young children, certified in CPR, and First-Aid, and align with American Camp Association and Department of Health guidelines.
All of Dwight’s lifeguards are nationally certified and of course, when campers swim at the Dwight pool, our lifeguards and aquatics staff are the same staff that we use year-round.
We also use the buddy systems throughout the camp day. Each camper is paired up and periodically during swim time, the lifeguard will blow the whistle. Each buddy pair will stop swimming, grab hands and raise them overhead to ensure safety.
Day camp swimmers are preliminarily tested and placed into respective groups within the cohort. Swim sessions encompass a “learn to swim” portion, followed by the organized recreational time.
