summer jam+swim camp
"Our son had a wonderful experience at camp. He learned a lot and had a great time every day. I would highly recommend the camp to anyone looking for a summer activity that will engage children in true learning in a very low-key, child-friendly way. This is exactly what summer programming should be. We can't wait to go back next summer!"
A full-day camp for kids ages 4 to 9 in Edgewater
During this week-long camp, kids spend one half of their day exploring music and the other in the pool at Edgewater Athletic Club with the swim instructors!
Kids explore the world of sound in an enriching, fun environment that offers hands-on experiences with instruments and introduces them to sounds from around the world. Campers learn through all of the senses by discovering more about music through dance, books, games, art and more! You can read more below about the weekly music themes: Our Orchestra, Our World, Our Nation, and Our City.
Campers spend about two hours at Edgewater Athletic Club enjoying the beautiful facilities and heated pool. After two weeks of daily lessons and organized play, your beginner child will be much more comfortable in the pool and will start working towards basic strokes. Campers with some swim background will be exposed to level-appropriate drills and stroke basics.
