Aquatics


Ivy League Campers Love to Swim!!!

Ivy League Day Camp’s Aquatics program is a premier example of what makes us so special.  Our Swim Staff meets and exceeds the strictest qualifications, all being Red Cross Certified.  Our Waterfront includes four state-of-the-art, heated swimming pools including Frog Learning Pool, Lower Slide Instruction Pool, Olympic Training Pool and Dive Pool. All of our pools have been specifically designed to serve various ages and capabilities of our campers.  Whether they’re just learning to blow bubbles or ready to dive in our Upper Pools, Ivy League campers love to swim! And, they get to do it twice daily (one instructional, one recreational swim)!

Instructional Swim

Swimming is truly the highlight of our camp program.  At Ivy League Day Camp, we believe that swimming is an important life skill and builds confidence in our campers.  Whether a camper is learning to kick their legs in the water or mastering swim strokes there are always new skills to learn and goals to accomplish! On your child’s first day of camp he/she will be evaluated according to The Red Cross Swimming Skill Levels. Upon completion of this analysis, each child is placed in a swim group with others campers at the same skill level.  During Instructional Swim, all pools are carefully monitored by our Red Cross Certified Lifeguards and instruction is taught by Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructors; counselors are instructed to actively participate in the water with their campers for added supervision. Progress is communicated home with a “Swim Gram” which indicates the skills campers have learned and mastered. Each child wears a colored wrist band throughout the summer which signifies which pools they are able to swim in; so there is never any confusion and every camper is safe.  

Recreational Swim 

Our Waterfront fun is endless!!  Every afternoon campers are treated to a Recreational Swim period.  Based on campers’ age, skill level and camp division campers may have a double period of water fun! During this swim period our lower campers can get sprayed and splashed as they crawl through our Kiddie Car Wash (sorry mom & dad, no soap included), play in WaterWorks @ Ivy League, our interactive Splash Pad, slide down Mr. Toad, our beginner slide, or whiz down one of two Twisty Slides in our Intermediate Pool. Upper campers can spend their Recreational Swim simply cooling off with friends in our Olympic Pool or fly down our super fast Tube Slide in our Dive Pool. During recreational swim all pools are monitored by our trained lifeguards and “buddy checks” are done to make certain all children are accounted for and safe.

Another Ivy League Day Camp aquatic attraction are our fabulous Bumper Boats! Bumper Boats are programmed into each camp group’s weekly schedule. Our youngest campers float and gently bump around in our child size Bumper Boat wading pool while our older campers bump, splash and get soaked in our NEW 4,000 sq foot, hand-carved, Bumper Boat pool designed to replicate a natural pond or lake.
