Waterloo’s Summer Camp mission is to help ensure water safety and awareness and cultivate a love for all physical activities in and around water.

Waterloo has three unique swim camps in 2019! The Swim Safety Camp is geared toward novice level swimmers who want to learn more about water safety awareness, develop stronger swim skills, and discover more about water activities. The Swim Fitness Camp is for advanced swimmers who would like to develop stronger technique and learn more about supporting their swim fitness goals through healthy food and lifestyles. We also have a unique opportunity to attend a Mermaid Summer Camp.
