Campers make incredible strides in their swimming at Miquon. Every camper has three to four swimming sessions a week — that include 30 minutes of swimming instruction supervised by certified water safety instructors and recreational swim.
Campers take short lessons in small groups (and often, one on one instruction) that emphasize building confidence and comfort in the water first. Once the confidence is achieved, then instructors move to work on swimming skills. Children are grouped according to current swimming comfort/achievement levels following proficiency standards based on the American Red Cross.
