The fundamental teachings and philosophies of Apple Montessori Schools and Summer Camps are embraced in our unique summer camp aquatics program. Our daily lessons are designed to build upon each child’s individual skills and abilities, while promoting safety and fun!
Daily Swimming Lessons
Our certified lifeguards and aquatics instructor use Apple’s unique approach to foster each child’s swimming abilities and pace. Within each small group lesson, each teacher is trained to target the skills each particular child needs to acquire. Our curriculum covers four levels of swimming from Level 1, Swimming Readiness, through Level 4, Stroke Development and Enhancement.
The youngest campers are provided with safety bubbles, which are eventually removed as their skills develop. Our oldest campers are challenged in different ways building up their endurance and skills while learning the value swimming can have on a lifetime of healthy living.
All summer program campers, even our youngest children participate in weekly safety lessons which include recognizing emergency situations, boating safety, and the role of a lifeguard.
Games and positive reinforcements are an integral part of our summer camp curriculum. Campers are recognized for their accomplishments throughout the summer with awards and certificates.
Parents are kept informed with weekly written updates, and ultimately, a report certificate.
Daily and weekly free swim time is offered to our older campers aged four years to fourteen years of age. The children can try out their newly acquired skills while playing pool games and activities all under the supervision of our lifeguards and camp counselors.
Apple’s state of the art facilities include several uniquely designed swimming pools.
Our heated pools include large shallow ends, which promote a sense of security for our youngest students as they develop their swimming skills, while deeper ends foster stroke development and endurance. See individual locations for specific pool design.
