The intensive one week camp teaches the basic skills and techniques of swimming that parents demand to ensure the safety of their children in aquatic environments. The camp is geared toward participants in the 7-12 age range and runs at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre, Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Not only do these full day camps focus on swimming skills but also include outdoor activities, skating, bowling and more...
