The Walnut Creek Aquanuts is the home of 17 Olympians, 8 of which are Gold Medalists! WCA prides itself in hosting the premier synchronized swimming camp in the USA. Week in the Creek campers are coached by:
National Team Staff
National Team Athletes
Skills covered at Week in the Creek:
swimming and propulsion skills
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:
A very special training session with Master Lu Yi, The Artistic Director and Director of Acrobatics for the San Francisco Circus Center
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.
Meals and Lodging:
Campers stay 4 to a room. Healthy, high energy meals and snacks are provided for all athletes and are included in the camp price. Campers are fully chaperoned at the hotel. If your camper wishes to stay with their parent/guardian in the hotel, you may register for the "Day Camper" price(see below for details). Please note lunch, dinner and transportation to and from the pool are still included in the Day Camper price.

Campers should aim to arrive at the airport by 11am or noon on Friday to be picked up in time for the start of camp. Campers who are more local, or who will be dropped off by parents, please arrive to the hotel between noon and 1pm.
