Overnight & Commuter Camps
Our overnight/commuter camp is a great opportunity for you to use our facilities and spend time with our coaching staff. You will have the chance to receive instruction from a variety of coaches and current collegiate swimmers. This camp is perfect for year-round swimmers, summer league swimmers or those that just love to swim! The commuter option is ideal for those in the Raleigh, Cary, Durham, or Chapel Hill, North Carolina areas and the overnight option is great for swimmers from anywhere!
For Summer 2020 we are offering 2 options for each of our camps: TECHNIQUE or TRAINING.
Those who choose the TECHNIQUE option will have a greater focus on stroke improvements and drill work. They will swim twice each day with a 30-minute daily dryland. This option is open to any age (9-18) and is our most popular option.
Those who choose the TRAINING option will have more yardage and intensity incorporated into their swim and dryland sessions but will still also have some technique focus to correct stroke imperfections. Campers will swim 3 times each day with a 45-minute daily dryland. These swimmers MUST be 12 or older by the start of camp (no exceptions). Swimmers in the Training group should have experience training doubles and have a regular dryland routine.
Both options are designed for swimmers that have aspirations of improving their strokes and times for high school, club, and/or college swimming. In addition, both options will cover all 4 strokes, starts, turns, sprint vs. distance training methods, race strategies, and mental preparation. For safety reasons, this camp requires that each swimmer be able to swim all four competitive strokes legally and registration is limited to ages 9-18.
You may select the track during registration, but final group placements will be done on the Sunday evening of camp after an initial pool workout. To maximize a swimmer’s benefits from camp, we may move some campers from Training to Technique per our discretion. We will not move campers from Technique to Training.
Overnight Option: $715
Commuter Option: $580*
*Commuters will have all meals with camp except breakfast daily. Commuter day will start at 8:30/9:00 and end at 7:30/7:15 (depending on Training/Technique track). Thursday camp ends at 4:00pm.
A non-refundable deposit of $125 is due at the time of registration. Remaining camp fees are due by May 1. Any unpaid balances after this date will result in loss of deposit and will be replaced by our wait list.There are no refunds of any portion of the camp fee after May 1 for reasons other than documented medical conditions. New registrations will still be accepted after May 1st, space permitting.
We also offer optional underwater video w/commentary as an add-on when registering for either overnight or commuter camp. You may choose whichever stroke(s) you wish to have this for and the cost is $35 per stroke (or start). Select these options during registration. Sibling discounts do not apply to this selection.
