Swimming...Good for Life!Swimming is a lifetime skill that every child should master. We feel so strongly about it that swimming is the single most important activity at Purchase Day Camp. Our pool complex designed with swim instruction in mind. ALL OUR POOLS ARE HEATED and they are depth appropriate. Your child will swim twice daily and one of those swim periods will be a small group lesson. We have over 20 Certified Lifeguards on staff and we use the American Red Cross Learn-To-Swim program. In addition to our waterfront staff, our counselors actively participate in swim instruction. This allows us to have very small 1:2 or 1:3 ratios for swim instruction.
