Badger & SwimAmerica

Badger Day Camp has partnered with SwimAmerica who is the nations leading learn to swim school. SwimAmerica is a nationally certified learn to swim curriculum created in 1988 by the American Swimming Coaches Association. SwimAmerica lessons are designed to teach all the swim skills your child needs to be safe in and around the water for a lifetime. SwimAmerica teaches children to swim, they don’t just teach lessons and they put safety first! Our campers will be swim evaluated on the first day of camp and placed in the corresponding swim level to their skills. Throughout camp our campers will progress through the stations and receive Badger badges to show their outstanding progress!
