Swim Trip Information

Campers swim on Friday afternoons, weather permitting at Hamilton Splash Park.

The pool area includes several areas appropriate for non-swimmers, as well as deeper water and play spaces for Campers able to pass the lifeguard-administered test to earn a neon green wristband.

Please pack a swimsuit and towel, and sunscreen for your Camper. We provide sunscreen, but if your Camper has sensitive skin, you may wish to provide your own.

Rash guards are welcome, but the pool does not permit street clothing, including tee shirts, in the water.
