The sport of swimming and diving has been a passion of mine ever since I can remember. Having a chance to run several swim camps at Bates College is one of the most exciting opportunities I have encountered. Our philosophy will simply be to offer outstanding coaching by a motivated and energetic staff whose sole mission is to take every step possible to stimulate every swimmer's love for the sport.
Simply put, we want to better your strokes, sharpen your attitude, and focus your goals so you can reach your absolute potential! More specifically though, the Bates Swim Camp will offer both a training and technique aspect - in an environment that is both positive and healthy.

For the older more experienced camper, this is truly an elite camp experience with a small college vibe. Only the best college coaches on deck... only the latest info on technique... and only the smartest and most challenging sets out there. The last thing you want to do is "get out of shape" at swim camp, so we will train you smart while making sure you have a good time. We also know that movie nights, pizza parties, and capture the flag are just as important as starts, turns, and stroke technique, so good times abound!
This year we will continue to have 2 weeks of Stroke Camp for the overnight or day camper, a Start and Turn Camp (3 days), and of course our always intimate Comprehensive Day Camp. Again, we will limit enrollment (70 max a week) in order to keep our numbers in a range where instruction is paramount - and the personal touch remains. All camps are open to swimmers 9-17 years old.
Finally, please fill out the online application form to begin the process of enrolling (see "REGISTRATION" to your right). If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me directly.
