"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 the first half of their day exploring music and after lunch, it's into the pool at Edgewater Athletic Club with the swim instructors!


The music part of their day is designed to let 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 in the afternoon 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.
