The Ruth Inch Memorial Pool offers a daycamp for children 7 to 12 years old that allows participants to focus on building their swimming and Water Smart skills. Camp runs Monday to Friday from 9am to 5 pm each weekday with the exception of stat holidays.

In order to participate in camp you must be:

  • 7 years old or older
  • able to swim 25m

The camp is a good way for participants to prepare for fun in, on and around the water. The morning will be spent doing drills, learning lifesaving skills and techniques. In the afternoon we will take part in public swim and then work on first aid skills, public relations role playing and how to handle basic emergencies.
