Swim Camps 2017

General information

Swim camp is a great way for your swimmer to gain some independence, meet new friends and learn from different coaches.  A variety of camps are listed below, many of which our swimmers have attended.  The camp information quoted is for overnight camp (generally they like the kids to be 9 years old and comfortable with being away from home, see notes for camp by camp restrictions) but many camps have a day camp option.  We have had a number of swimmers attend Carthage as a day swimmer.    Many of our kids attend camp so ask around if you are looking for a roommate.  All camps video the swimmers.

College Swim Camps at Carthage - This camp is great for younger or less experienced swimmers.  We have sent some of our more experienced swimmers to this camp with mixed reviews on the value of the camp given their experience level.
