Learn how to improve as a competitive swimmer within the very unique environment at the US Naval Academy.
Our most important goal is to provide you the very best in individual instruction and evaluation, camper experience, and safety/supervision. The purpose of our camp is to offer you with a unique and awesome environment to learn as well as develop your competitive strokes including all related starts, turns and finishes. Navy Swimming Camp is a stroke-intensive camp. You will receive individual attention. Additional training sessions are offered for those needing to maintain conditioning while at camp. Video analysis, dry land activities designed to improve individual fitness levels, performance, training, goal-setting and leadership presentations, are all part of a full schedule for 2016.
Campers will learn and train in an amazing environment at the Naval Academy. The two primary aquatic facilities to be used are Lejeune Hall; a 25 meter by 50 meter facility with separate diving tank, and Scott Natatorium in MacDonough Hall.
