Summer Day Camp swim tests are mandatory. To pass, Campers are required to swim the width of the pool without stopping, laboring or touching the bottom and to tread water for 30 seconds. (we have a spreadsheet to keep track). The test is initiated the first pool day but Campers are allowed to take the test every day until they pass (even in August). Campers who don’t attend until later in the summer are still required to participate in swim testing. Campers are not permitted to go into water over their head (which means the diving boards) until they pass the swim test.
