Camps begin with check-in between noon – 1 p.m. on Sunday and conclude with a final meet at 3 p.m. Thursday.
Swim Camp Daily Activities
Each camp session includes two teams of swimmers grouped by age and ability. Three daily pool sessions, dry-land practices, group instruction and review of underwater videos make up the instructional portion of the day. Camp is definitely not all work and no play! Recreational activities, led by coaches and counselors, include softball games, a campfire, a dance, movie night, pizza night and other less structured activities.
Room, Board and Roommates
Campers are housed two per room and may request a specific roommate. Roommates must request each other on their registration form. Camp space is filled on a first-come-first-serve basis and spots cannot be held for a late-registering roommate. There are no triple rooms available summer 2015.
Stav Hall, the school’s cafeteria, offers healthy choices that include a salad bar, grilled meats and veggies, hot entrees, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, a deli station, soup, and the popular dessert station.
Coaches and counselors live in the residence halls and provide 24-hour supervision of swimmers and their activities. The college also provides a security staff that operates 24/7 year-round.
The summer swim camp fee includes lodging Sunday through Wednesday nights with bedding and a bath towel. The fee also includes meals from Sunday dinner through Thursday lunch, a low camper-to-coach ratio, a video recording of underwater swim strokes, an instructional booklet, a written stroke analysis, a swim camp t-shirt and a St. Olaf College swim cap.
