“When I hear other parents talking about how their kids are getting bored with swimming, I tell them, ‘send your kids to the Arete Swim Camp!’ The kids learn a lot, have a ball and reconnect to what they love about the sport.’ Tim S.
One of the unique features of the Arete swim 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.
The Arete 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.

The ARETE Swim Camp Four Core Objectives:
- Immediately improve each INDIVIDUAL’S SKILLS.
- Enhance each individual’s SELF-ESTEEM as a swimmer.
- Greatly develop the joy of TEAMWORK in each camper and send them home better able to be teammate.
- Create WOW! experiences for every camper of things that excite them about the sport.
The single most important aspect of our camp is the safety and welfare of the children in it. We are proud of our superior record in this regard and are vigilant to continue it. Each staff member is trained in our “Child Protection Manual and Safety Procedures Program.” As a part of that program our policies include:
- No child ever being left alone (this includes a buddy system when going to the restroom).
- A counselor is never alone with any child.
- Each staff member has a background check.
- A thorough reference check for all camp employees.
