Update June 11
We are unable to offer our usual style of Swim Camps. We will have no access to other parts of the Summit aside from the pool. We are working through Swim Canada, Provincial and City guidelines to offer training times during weekdays, for current Marlins, in three week sign up blocks. This information will be sent as soon as we are able to finalize it prior to July 1.
A decision will be made regarding conducting Summer Swim Camps at a later date depending on the latest recommendations regarding COVID-19 in our province. Should we be able to offer camps this summer, registration will open the end of May.
The Marlins offer swim camps for everyone from kids still learning to swim but who may be interested in becoming a competitive swimmer to those who are nearing the end of their swimming careers and interested in gaining other skills.
We have new camps this year! The Marlins plan to run camps July 6-Aug 28. There will be no camp August 5th and we will offer a reduced rate that week. Each camp is subject to cancellation or change if there is not sufficient registration.
To register find the appropriate camp on our Events page and click Register Online. There will be no refunds for partial weeks, or for cancellations with less then 14 days notice.
