The Armada Swim & Adventure Camp is open to 6-12 year old swimmers looking to foster an active lifestyle filled with the love for swimming and the outdoors. Every week we will cover all four strokes with a focus on technique, starts and turns in all strokes.

Campers should have a basic level proficiency for free and back strokes. Other strokes are not required, and will be taught as the swimmers progress.

For Summer 2021, we are looking at COVID-safe adventures, so we’ll venture beyond the pool as usual, but our adventures will be focused on hiking to local fun spots for picnics, arts and crafts projects, and games on the lawn! We are looking at adding a few other adventures beyond a walk-able area, but will keep registered families posted.

Please note that campers should have basic ability in a minimum of 2 strokes. If you have questions regarding your swimmers ability and are unsure if their skills would qualify for this camp please reach out to the camp directors for a swim assessment. 

Location: Albany Aquatic Center & Memorial Park, 1311 Portland Ave, Albany CA

COVID Precautions 

All staff is fully vaccinated. We are following Alameda county guidelines, and ask that those that are not vaccinated wear a mask or face shield when not in the pool. Also, if anyone in your household is exposed to anyone testing positive for COVID, we ask that you keep your camper at home and please inform us immediately. If your child has a fever or any other symptoms, please be considerate of all campers and staff and keep your child at home. As of June 15, the State has lifted many of the Stay at Home order restrictions, although our staff will still be wearing masks while out of the water. Hand santizer is readily available and our play equipment is wiped down frequently. The locker rooms at the pool are available for changing purposes, but a pop-up changing tent is available outside for those that do not wish to use the lockers rooms. We continue to work in coordination with the Aquatic Center and the AUSD to ensure safety for all those in and around the camp, including staff, campers and pool staff. Please reach out to us with any specific questions.
