Swim

Swim Lessons and Free swim are well loved activities at Kateri Day Camp.  Every child has a swim lesson every day. Swim lessons take place in our Olympic size pool and are instructed by our American Red Cross certified lifeguards and swim instructors.

It is our goal that all Kateri campers will learn basic swim strokes and personal safety techniques. Campers will be classified at varying levels depending upon their swim ability as determined by a basic swim test. Shallow water swimmers have lessons that focus on very basic techniques. Mid-water swimmers focus on three stokes and must be proficient in front crawl and back stroke before moving on. Deep water swimmers focus on more advanced strokes. All campers are required to participate in swim lessons every day.

Free swim is available every afternoon to every camper who has taken his/her swim lesson in the morning. Free swim is a time to cool off, have fun and practice newly learned swim skills.
