One of the most popular attractions at Elbow Lane Day Camp is our swim program. An experienced staff of Certified Red Cross Lifeguards is proud of their record of turning non-swimmers into swimmers. The children receive a period of structured swim activities in the morning with the intent of helping campers build confidence and improve skill in the water, plus a period of free swim every afternoon! Each of our 4 pools has been designed with age and ability level in mind. As children grow, they advance to a larger pool.
