Discovery Day Camp follows the Starfish Swim and Stroke School’s “Curriculum and Core Skills Achievement Stages”. Each stage includes Lead Up Skills, a Safety Skill Benchmark, and a Swim Skill Benchmark. All campers (except Explorers and Future Leaders) swim twice daily, weather permitting. Our pool’s temperature is always around 80 degrees! The first swim of the day is instructional and the second is recreational. We supply a towel and dry swimsuits after every swim period. Campers bring home reports of their swim progress (at minimum) every two weeks.
All Aquatics Staff hold current Star Aquatics Institute Lifeguard and Starfish Instructor certificates. In addition, all Group Leaders and Assistant Group Leaders hold current Starfish Instructor certificates. Many Group Leaders and Assistant Group Leaders also hold current Star Aquatics Institute Lifeguard certificates.
First Aid and CPR Training is required for all Staff.
