Coaching:

The Walnut Creek Aquanuts is the home of 17 Olympians, eight of which are Gold Medalists! WCA prides itself in hosting the premier synchronized swimming camp in the USA led by Kim Probst, head coach of WCA and 2008 Olympian and Team Captain. Week in the Creek campers are coached by:

  • Olympians
  • Olympic Coaches
  • National Team Staff
  • National Team Athletes
  • National Champions

Camp Structure:

Skills covered at Week in the Creek:

  • flexibility/extension
  • strength/fitness training
  • swimming and propulsion skills
  • figures
  • lifts
  • routine swimming
  • Grade Level Testing prep

Campers begin with a half day afternoon session on Friday, the first day of camp, where they meet the other campers and are grouped based on age and skill level. Saturday, Sunday, and Monday are full days of training. Campers typically leave the hotel at 8:00 am and return at 8:00 pm. During that time campers typically have two land sessions and two water sessions per day. Tuesday, the final day of camp, is a morning half-day session where campers will put on an exhibition showcasing the routine they learned.

In addition to intense training during the day, nightly activities can include:

  • Specialty training sessions such as theatrics, yoga, flexibility, gymnastics and/or dance. 
  • BBQ and skits in the park
  • Outing to Downtown Walnut Creek
  • Arts and Crafts

Each camper will return home with a heightened skill base, new friendships, memories to last a lifetime, and a complimentary WCA goodie bag.
