Every camper, on their first day of camp, is given a swim assessment by our staff. The purpose of the assessment is to gauge the child's comfort and experience level in the ocean and assign them safe and specific swimming boundaries. Campers are given color-coded wristbands (based on the outcome of their swimming assessment) designating how deep we'll allow them to go in the ocean. No child is allowed deeper than their waist with feet firmly set on the ocean floor. Campers get a new wristband each day and love collecting them day-after-day as souvenirs of their time at camp.
