Blog: Group 3, Week 1B


Its been such a hot summer so far, we can’t wait to dive into even more summer fun at the pool! We started instructional swim this week and look forward to helping your camper build on their skills in the coming weeks.

Just as a reminder, each day campers have a free and instructional swim period. Campers receive swim instruction from American Red Cross Certified lifeguards and instructors. After each camper is evaluated on their swim skills, they are placed into their appropriate swim groups with respective bracelet color.

The swim levels are:

Blue: Wader, Splasher, Guppy

Orange: Tadpole, Minnow, Goldfish

Red: Catfish, Dolphin, Marlin, Barracuda, Shark, Killer Whale

To get more information on the objectives of each swim level, please check out the document section located on the left side of your parent portal The levels are listed under “Swim Information 2018”.

If you have any specific questions about swim, feel free to email  Nina, Swim Director, at or leave a voicemail at 212.415.5643 ext 3.

The Astro Aliens blasted into this week of camp with loads of laughter at Circus Arts, as we balanced peacock feathers on our chins and twirled ribbons! We zoomed into Gymnastics on Tuesday, mastering our tumbling skills and tuck jumps. After an awesome soccer battle on Thursday, we fought off the heat with an extra refreshing trip to the pool! We all enjoyed have extra special time up at camp and loved the delicious hamburgers and hot dogs at the Unit K BBQ. During the late night we got into our unit theme, “Up in the Air”, as we flew around the planets with our rocket ships at the Outer Space Obstacle Course and got to fly our very own kites! We didn’t let the rain get us down on Friday, as we all got to enjoy a very special camp-wide Shabbat. Tune in next week to see what adventures the Astro Aliens go on next!
