    The swim camp coaches are dedicated and committed. I would highly recommend them if you want to improve your swiming. The Halloween three day camp was well worth the effort and good fun.I would highly recommend swiming with swim camp
  • Avatar Meike Sommer β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… a month ago
    Manuela, Susan and the whole team are doing a wonderful job providing small-class weekly swim lessons for children (beginner up to improving strokes). We attend the classes in Castle Park.We love the fact that there is a teacher in the water with the younger ones.Smaller classes than usual and teachers who know each child’s progression (and their names!) make for a great learning experience. My kids have improved so much since joining Swim Camp. Manuela and Susan are also wonderful to deal with. They seem to really care about each child and where they are on their swim journey.
  • Avatar Stha B β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… a month ago
    Swim Camp is the best decision we ever made for our kids swimming skills. They have thrived because the coaches are friendly & attentive. A huge thanks Susan & Manuela.
  • Avatar Ste Traynor β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜… a month ago
