On the campers’ first day in camp, they are given a brief swim check to determine their swimming ability. The camper will then be assigned one of three levels of swimmer: Pool 1 (beginner), Pool 2 (intermediate), or Pool 3 (advanced). Pool 1 swimmers are just learning the basics of swimming….(< 25 yards); Pool 2 swimmers can swim between 25 – 50 yards with ease; Pool 3 swimmers can swim 50 – 100 yds with ease and can tread water for 3 minutes. Campers are not required to take instructional swim, but may elect to, as one of their three programs. With the help of our certified swim instructors, many swimmers have learned to swim in the week that they spend here at Camp Rotary! For the remainder of the week, the camper will only be allowed to swim in the area that corresponds with his/her pool level (or below).
