Featured Camp: University of Northern Colorado

University of Northern Colorado Swimming Camps are designed to teach athletes the technical aspects of swimming to help them achieve success at the next level. While the main focus of their camp is on stroke analysis and technique for starts and turns, They also provide elite training sessions, team building activities, nutritional education, competition preparation tools and mental training.

They group athletes according to skill level and are able to accommodate swimmers of all levels, but for safety purposes we ask that campers be proficient in each of the 4 strokes.

Prices include elite stroke technique instruction and analysis for all four strokes, start and turn clinics, education on nutrition and race preparation, a camp t-shirt, a camp cap lodging and meals (all meals for overnight campers / lunch and dinner for day campers).

›› Discounts → A 10% discount is available for families with multiple campers after the first camper has paid in full. A $25.00 discount is also available for groups with 10 or more campers who register together from the same team.

“We are very pleased to have Coach Ebeling joining our department,” said Director of Athletics Darren Dunn. “She brings a wealth of swimming knowledge to our team, especially in the state of Colorado with her familiarity of the high schools and club programs. I am excited to have someone with her experience and passion for the sport join the Bear family, along with her husband, Eric and daughter, Elizabeth.”
