Featured Camp: Neal Studd Swim Camp at Florida State University

The Neal Studd Swim Camp at Florida State University is a camp that focuses on giving each swimmer between the ages of 7 and 18 the tools to improve their overall technique.

We emphasize physical fitness, stroke technique, starts, turns, nutrition and mental training. Each camper will receive specific instruction on all 4 strokes, turns and starts. There will be classroom sessions on each of these these principles as well as talks on nutrition. We will also have champion swimmers come in to talk to our campers.

Our goal each session is to give your camper the tools to improve their swimming as well as give them a renewed love of the sport! We love to hear from our campers each year, and they often express a refreshed and excited attitude toward swimming while also improving their performances following their camp stay. We boast a highly experienced and energetic camp staff!
