COVID-19 Bolles Swim Camp 2020 Update

Jeff Pishko

Hello Bolles Swim Campers & Families,


We hope that all your families are safe, secure and healthy. Thank you so much for being so patient as we have worked through these unprecedented times around the world. We know that with so much uncertainty out there it has been difficult to predict the direction of anything, much less what your kids are doing for the Summer. We understand that a lot of athletes having been looking forward to our swim camp for several months and we would love nothing more than to be able to go on as normal with the top notch swim camp that we run each year.


As we have looked at every consideration for swim camp, please know that The Bolles School Administration and the Bolles Sharks coaching staff keep the safety of all student-athlete’s our top priority. In accordance with the Multi-Phase plan of the Governor of Florida we will modify the Bolles Swim Camp.  In place of 3 sessions from June 7 to July 11th we will be working to provide two weeks of camp from July 5 to 18.  You can see additional details below.


Since we are limited in the number of spots that we can offer our current registered athletes will have the first right of refusal to attend the modified swim camp by June 15, 2020. Once we have determined the number of spots that are still available we will open the registration up to new athletes that would like to attend.


NEW 2020 Bolles Swim Camp:

Session 1: July 5-11

Session 2: July 11-18

Cost Per Week: $800

Registration (1 time): $200

Included is Room, Board, and Training (Modified to meet the needs of campers as they arrive on campus).  The camp is limited in capacity to ensure safety.


A final decision to host our 2020 Camp in this format or with any further modifications will be made on June 5th.   We will ONLY host this camp if government policy and the decisions to ensure the health of our greater Bolles School community allow for it.  We will refund camp fees for any camps that are not able to take place.  We are NOT certain we will be able to host this camp, we will be doing all we can to make it possible.


As in the past, airline transportation costs and arrangements need to be made by individual families and are not included in camp costs.  Please plan for the following arrivals and departures, Due to staff limitations we will not be able accommodate early arrivals (before the designated start date) or late departures (after the last day of swim camp). The camp staff will provide transportation of the athletes to and from Jacksonville International Airport at no cost within the below parameters, if you have difficulty scheduling flights within the below time blocks please let me know.


  • Arrive to Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) between 11:00am-3:00pm on the first day.
  • Departing Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) between 2:00pm-6:00pm on the final day.
