Staff

We use 1-10 ratio of counselors to campers. Our counselors are primarily college students with many years of day camp experience.

Swim Lessons

Take swim lessons during day camp. These lessons will be available to any child enrolled at the Camelot, Frontier, or Heritage locations. You must sign up for swim lessons each session that you are interested in participating. Swim lessons are not available at Pioneer Park, due to the fact that camp only meets three days a week and field trips are held on Wednesdays. Lessons at Frontier, Camelot, and Heritage will be held three days a week (Mon., Tues., Thurs.) for 40 minutes and taught by the Aquatic Department Staff. 

Tennis Lessons

Available to any child enrolled at Camelot, Frontier, or Heritage. You must sign up for tennis lessons each session, if desired. Tennis lessons are not available at Pioneer. Lessons at Camelot, Frontier, and Heritage will be hold on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:15 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. and taught by tennis staff
