Swimming at Camp!

We appreciate that parents place great importance on swimming lessons when choosing a summer day camp for their children. Our campers swim daily and enjoy both swimming lessons and a “fun swim” in our two onsite, outdoor heated pools and our heated junior waterslide park – a camper favourite!

Safety is the number one priority when campers are in the pools. In addition to having their lifeguarding qualifications, all our swim staff are certified instructors. At Green Acres, we teach the Lifesaving Society Swim program and pride ourselves on keeping our camper – instructor ratios low to provide a safe and high quality program. At each pool, we always have a senior supervisor on deck and our instructors are trained to help campers advance their swim skills in a fun and interactive setting!

Parents receive a mid-term report to let them know how their child(ren) is progressing in their lesson. If a camper passes a level, parents will be notified that their child(ren) has passed and has been moved to the next level. We go over and above the York Region Public Health Safety Standards with respect to lifeguarding requirements, both in the water and on the pool deck. You can rest assured that Green Acres is committed to offering quality swim instruction in a fun and safe environment!
