  • 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 8am and return at 8pm. During that time campers typically have two lands 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.
