Swim N' Splash


The Swim N’ Splash Camp provides campers with the opportunity to engage in water activities that enhance movement skills, teamwork and sportsmanship at the UBC Aquatic Centre. A Lifesaving Society: Swim for Life lesson is included, allowing swimmers to improve aquatic skills, strokes, safety and fitness. Beginner & Intermediate level swimmers will have a 45 minute lesson, and Advanced level swimmers, a 60 minute lesson. After the lesson portion of camp, participants will engage in instructor-led games and other fun activities. The camp will emphasize fair and safe play, while promoting water safety.

Campers will be placed into their respective Swim for Life levels based on their most recently completed swimming level. Please ensure that upon registration you include this information. If you are uncertain of your child’s swim ability or level, please contact aquatic.daycamps@ubc.ca.
