Dive into a week of music and swimming with Summer Jam & Swim Camp in Edgewater for ages 4-9!
We've been working behind the scenes for weeks trying to coordinate all the moving parts that will make this year's Summer Jam and Swim the safest and most fun ever! Now we're excited to announce that we've made the safety plans needed to welcome them to camp!
We've implemented some changes to the camp, which includes limiting the number of campers to only 10 per week, so if you haven't registered yet, please do so soon as we anticipate that the remaining spots will go quickly. Especially since we're one of the only camps able to offer swimming this summer thanks to EAC's year-round pool maintenance!
You can read more about the normal camp details here, but I want to focus this message on what we're doing differently this summer to ensure the health and safety of our staff and participants. We've created a safety plan that is in compliance with all state and city guidance to allow us all to enjoy a safe, fun summer together!
