Swim & Gym is our 8-week summer program packed full of all-day fun (8am-6pm) and activities! This summer, we are hosting campers going into Kindergarten through 5th grade with a separate camp for Middle Schoolers (incoming 6th-8th grades). Each day includes swimming, lawn games, arts and crafts, singing, sports, and Bible Time! Every year, we love watching our campers interact with our wonderful counselors and make new friends among fellow campers. Swim & Gym is such a special place to spend the summer creating many new memories.
This summer, we are excited to announce that we are finally able to bring back field trips every Thursday! We are planning many amazing and unique trips led by our awesome staff for our campers to experience throughout the summer. Field trip destinations will be announced soon.
Last year, we realized offering two-week sessions didn’t fit well with our families’ summer schedules. This summer, we will be offering one week sessions to provide families with flexibility to plan around our camp. We have eight individual week-long sessions available this summer, starting June 19 and ending August 11 (closed on Tuesday, July 4). Join us for any/all sessions!
We are so excited to see you this summer at Swim & Gym’s “Space is the Place”! Please contact us with any questions, and register below!
Registration for Swim & Gym 2023 is now open
WHAT Swim & Gym OFFERS:
Each morning, all groups spend some time bonding together through board games, get to know you icebreakers, art projects, and other fun activities.
Campers get the option of choosing one of several activities that we offer. Choice Time consists of the classic fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive learning categories. We make efforts to provide campers with a chance to explore beauty (creativity), abundance (entrepreneurship), and order (science) through our camp programming.
SNACK AND LUNCH
Swim and Gym provides 2 snacks daily for campers and staff at 10:30 a.m. and around 3 p.m. depending on afternoon schedule. Each snack offers a minimum of 2 food groups. To count, each food offered must have significant nutrition with a low fat or sugar content.
As with lunches, if your child has a food allergy or is a picky eater, please pack a snack for your child as well. Please pack a healthy lunch for your child each day.
During the afternoons, we have tons of fun activities in rotation for both our Olders and Youngers groups!
In the past, we have had access to both the Sequoia and PCC Community Center pools. We look forward to having pool access again this year! We have PCC gym and lawn access to play basketball or other fun games. Our program also offers chill time with arts and crafts back in the classrooms.
