Programs and Activities: Swimming
CAMP HILLARD is proud of its swim program. Our tradition of excellence is a result of years of experience. Each camper's progress is important to us.
Our SEVEN BEAUTIFUL HEATED SWIMMING POOLS are designed for children. We are able to begin with shallow water skills and move on to deep-water techniques. Each pool is used for a specific swim level and age group. Campers are able to move up from our junior camp pools to our mid-sized pools to our Olympic-size pools as their ability increases. This important degree of flexibility allows each child to develop his/her potential effectively.
Our safety and supervisory system embraces superior techniques for water safety. Every parent can be assured that his child is under 100% effective supervision at all times.
Our top-notch swim staff is especially careful and knowledgeable with children. All instructors are American Red Cross certified and our key instructors have been with us for many years.

Afternoon free swim periods include water slides, diving boards, water sports and our exciting
