Summer 2022

Beauvoir Summer 2023

Weekend Swim Lessons (open to all)
We plan to offer group lessons on weekend mornings before opening the pool to members. Children must have turned five by the start of the swim lesson. Any registration of a child younger than five years old will result in an automictic cancellation—more information to be shared here in April 2023, with registration opening on May 1st, 2023.

AM and PM Swim Add-Ons (campers only)
Campers receive regular swim classes as part of their camp day. However, you can also register your child for an additional swim class daily as an add-on option. These are 30-minute group lessons. Information and registration will open in May 2023. 

Swimming at Camp

Beauvoir campers of all ages have the opportunity to enhance their swimming skills through group instruction. Grouped by skill, campers learn a variety of swim techniques, practice water-safety skills and play fun water games.

A variety of swim techniques are offered to best match the skills of each child. The Swim Staff is able to adapt their teaching approaches to the age, experience and ability of campers, so they can meet course objectives while having fun. Younger children are gradually introduced to the shallow end of the pool where their confidence grows through fun water activities. Experienced swimmers refine familiar strokes, learn new ones and practice water-safety skills.

All swimming instruction will be taught by Beauvoir swim staff under the watchful eyes of our lifeguards. Instructional swim consists of 20 minutes of swim instruction and 10 minutes of free swim. Our Swim Staff provides a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for our campers and are familiar with Red Cross swim levels and water safety practice and is CPR/AED and First Aid certified.
