ABOUT THE CAMP
The Aggie Swim Camp is known as a premiere technique-based camp where our philosophy is “INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION". We do one-on-one analysis and detailed stroke work with EVERY camper, EVERY day. The Aggie Swim Camp is known for being the first major collegiate swim camp to send home an individual videotape of each camper, included in the cost of camp. This dvd is a great reference tool that you can use all year long. Extensive filming includes above water, below water, starts and turns with voice-over stroke instruction, as well as one-on-one video analysis with camp coaches daily. Also included on the dvd are demonstrations of stroke drills utilized by our coaches with their own teams throughout the year.
Our coaches have a wealth of experience in coaching and developing age group to world-class swimmers including Olympians, Pan-American and NCAA champions. These coaches are on the deck working with the campers EVERY day.
Check-in occurs AT THE DORMS on the first day of each camp. Check-in times will be set up and communicated prior to the start of camp and campers may only check-in during their designated check-in time. ONE parent/guardian is allowed per camper during check-in who can help campers unpack and set up their dorm room. For safety reasons, parents are only allowed 30 minutes in the dorm to assist the camper.
Check-in is on the first day of camp from 2pm-4pm at The Cambridge in College Station. During check-in your camper will receive a letter and nametag showing which camp group he/she is in, who the counselors for that group are, and where the group’s roll call meeting spot is. At 4pm your camper will go to his/her first roll call to meet the counselors and the rest of the camp group and will be given the rules and instructions for the week.
Day campers will enjoy all the benefits of swim camp but will not stay overnight in the dorms. Day campers should be checked in with their counselor at The Cambridge café at 7:30am for breakfast each day. After breakfast day campers will do everything all other campers will do during the day. All meals will take place in The Cambridge café. Day campers will attend activities during the afternoon just as the resident campers do. During down time at the dorm day campers can enjoy time in the dorm’s game room, lobby, or in other campers’ rooms.
Day campers should be picked up at the end of each day in the dorm lobby between 8pm-10pm before lights out. Day campers are invited to participate in all activities in the evening – the ice cream social, movie night, scavenger hunt or just hanging out in the game room or other campers’ rooms. Please feel free to discuss your day camper's schedule with his/her counselor during the first roll call on check-in day. Please do not pick up your camper unless he/she is checked out by a counselor.
All campers will receive a Texas A&M Swim Camp t-shirt during their second camp roll-call.
Additional Swim Camp merchandise will be available for sale during check-in and check-out. Merchandise includes items such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, shorts, caps, suits, blankets, etc. Camp photos are taken of the entire camp group on the first night of camp and are also available for purchase at check-in and check-out.
