Please be prepared to give your child's swim level during registration. Use the level descriptions below and make your best estimate based on your child's last experience in the water. Instructors will confirm swim levels during lessons, but having an approximate starting point is very helpful.
If a camper does not swim with ease, we require they wear a puddle jumper life jacket during free swim. We will supply swimmers with puddle jumpers, or parents may send a child with their own PFD.
Level I: Help first time swimmers feel comfortable in the water.
Level 2: Students learn how to float and start to develop fundamental skills. They should be comfortable in the water.
Level 3: Students learn to front crawl, backstroke, and tread water. Students should be able to swim length of pool comfortably.
Level 4: Students learn endurance swimming in elementary back stroke, breaststroke, sidestroke, and to turn at the wall.
Strong swimmers age 5 and above who can swim the length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted, might consider joining the Killington Sharks competitive swim team. Learn more at www.killingtonsharks.com.
To add to the fun, we will travel to local state parks to swim and enjoy Vermont state lands.
