Free swim and swim lesson

Following snack time, campers head off to the indoor swimming pool! All pool activities are well-staffed with experienced and certified lifeguards. Additionally, on Friday's we soak up some sun in the outdoor pool and enjoy water games. 

On each child's first day we have a swim test (typically on Monday). All campers will participate during the free swim period and those signed up for lessons will have additional time in the pool for their lesson. Basic & advanced swim instruction is available for a nominal fee.

Don’t forget to pack a suit and towel every day!

BACKYARD GAMES AND SPORTS

At BYGS (pronounced bigs) we channel our inner athlete by challenging our camp mates to engaging games of sports and activities. Crab Soccer, Flag Football, Kickball, T-Ball, Water Balloon games, and Quidditch just to name a few. Most times the kids make the rules and we follow along. It's all about play, having fun, score, improve skills, make friends, share laughs with the team, grow your confidence. Learn and grow through play.
