Featured Camp: 2020 ARETE Swim Camp & Clinics


We are celebrating our 23rd year of inspiration and intense instruction led by three-time USA National Team Coach Chuck Warner that has helped transform more than 4000 swimmers. For eighteen consecutive years ARETE has sold out most sessions.  This year Coach Mickey Wender joins ARETE as lead coach for our Ramapo College session.

Our four core objectives are: Immediate Skill Improvement, Self-Esteem Development, Teamwork and “WOW Experiences.”  Through these four core objectives swimmers will learn stroke technique inside and out (with focus on body line and propulsion); techniques to overcome bad habits; starts and turns; underwater video analysis; energy eating education; visualization; focus; relaxation; self-image development; self-reliance; team spirit; and meaningful experiences that excite each athlete about the sport. Each swimmer is videoed in all four strokes underwater and has permanent access to their own recording. A coach analyzes each stroke with each swimmer using our camp workbook that we provide. A key aspect of our camp is our “Inner Engineering Curriculum” and we have a coach to swimmer ratio of 1:9 or better.  Our goal is to send our campers home rejuvenated and inspired to swim like a champion.

About Coach Warner: Coach Warner works with all of the swimmers in each camp.  His experience includes coaching seven national championship teams, three Olympic medal winners, thirteen years as a head college swim coach, four-time Big East Conference coach of the year.  He is the author of …And Then They Won Gold, Four Champions, One Gold Medal, EDDIE REESE: Coaching Swimming, Teaching Life and is the former President of the American Swimming Coach’s Association.
