Canoe - Kayak Swim
We have a large, in-ground pool, fully staffed with certified lifeguards and a Water Safety Instructor to help campers learn to swim. Campers will swim in our pool every day. Campers in Kindergarten - 7th grade are scheduled for at least one swim period per day.
Our pool has four sections, ranging from 2 - 12 feet deep.
All campers are given a swim test by our Pool Staff during the first two days of camp, prior to being allowed free swim. The swim test classifies campers based on their ability and will be shown by colored wristbands:
A Non-Swimmer or “No Band” swimmer is restricted to the shallow end of the pool in water no deeper than chest deep (2 feet).
Beginners or “Red Bands” are allowed in the section of the pool with a maximum depth of 4 feet.
Intermediate or “”Yellow Bands” are allowed in the section of the pool with a maximum depth of 5 feet.
Advanced or “Blue Bands” are allowed in all sections of the pool. Our pool has a maximum depth of 12 feet.
Hemlock lake offers 4th - 7th grade campers the opportunity to explore in one of our many canoes, kayaks, or rowboats. The lake is fully staffed with certified lifeguards who are experienced boaters.
