Featured Camp: Arete Swim Camp & Clinics

Why choose Arete for your next camp?

The word “arête” is the Greek for champion or “achievement everlasting”. Three-time USA National Team Coach Chuck Warner leads the Arête Swim Camp with inspiration and intense instruction, emphasizing development of an individual’s character with that of his or her swimming skills and conditioning. This process helps swimmers begin the journey to becoming a “champion of themselves”. In the past few years, many swimmers at Arête have begun or continued that journey toward success. The camp has met with very high acclaim.

The Arete swim camp has helped over 4,000 swimmers and has been SOLD OUT every year. You may wonder why people love returning year after year. Everyone has his or her personal answer, but you may want to read some testimonials from parents explaining their swimmer’s love of the camp by clicking HERE.

The Arête Swim Camp is open to swimmers with limited competitive swimming experience through national level athletes. Swimmers should be capable of swimming 50 yards of butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle. Resident campers must be between the ages of nine and eighteen and day campers can be as young as eight years old.

Unique Instruction

One of the unique features of the camp is the instructional and self-esteem development of each camper. Pool instruction is conducted with a coach to swimmer ration of one to nine (or less). Swimmers receive feedback after every drill or exercise with coaches positioned at both ends of the 25 yard pool. Instruction by coaches in and out of the pool strives to increase the camper’s self-image and self-esteem as a swimmer and as a person.

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. All of our camps include an “Inner Engineering Curriculum.” Coach Chuck Warner’s experience includes four-time Big East Conference coach of the year, author of …And Then They Won Gold, Four Champions, One Gold Medal and former President of the American Swimming Coach’s Association.

We will utilize the warm water pool for the youngest swimmers, except when we work on starts.

Dates: April 22nd; May 6th, 13th & 20th of 2018

Age: 7 – 18

Clinic Fees: $245 all four days/$70 per day

Click HERE to register for the Spring Super Strokes & Skills clinics.


Fall Clinics: Each individual must choose only one skill per day. We expect to make a great deal of improvement in the single session, however, an individual might want to repeat a skill in a second or even third clinic in order to master it more extensively. Changes in skill choice can be made up to two days prior to the Super-Skills Clinic. The reason for the pre-selection is to maximize the organization of the Super-Skills Clinic in order to provide the best learning environment for each swimmer.

Dates: September 10th, 17th & 24th; October 1st of 2018
