Red Cross Swim @ Camp

Children in the Red Cross Swim at Camp programRed Cross Swim @ Camp is a participation-based swimming and water safety training program designed specifically for camps that allows entire groups of children or youth to participate at different levels of ability.

The skills and knowledge in this program have been selected to prepare students to participate safely in aquatic activities. It can be offered as a stand-alone, water-based program (Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced); a dry-land, classroom-based program (Water Safety Brain Games); or a combination of the two.

Program Structure

Red Cross Swim @ Camp offers three levels to accommodate children or youth of all skill levels and abilities: 1) Beginner, 2) Intermediate, and 3) Advanced.

This program is designed from the Red Cross Swim program, which is recognized by educators for its swimming and water safety education for youth.

By focusing on fitness and developing life skills, students are exposed to a safe water environment where they are encouraged to participate and increase their swimming endurance.

Everyone can participate and have fun. The program is designed to allow groups of children or youth to participate at various levels of ability and encourages everyone to achieve his or her own personal best.

While campers are not evaluated, the Water Safety Instructor can track campers’ abilities and make a recommendation on which level the camper should enroll in for Red Cross Swim Kids.
