Who is this camp for?
Designed for families who want to swim together, this trip offers the chance for adults to bring children as young as 12 to enjoy the full experience of a swimming holiday. Our Introduction to Open Water trip is suited to swimmers who can comfortably swim at least 500m in pool and are looking to make the transition to the open water. This trip will focus on swim technique, open water swim skills and endurance, and offers the chance for a variety of swimming abilities to develop with swimming in the sea.
Our Teens trips conveniently operate during school holidays and provide the opportunity for teenagers to swim with others of their own age as well as with their family. Swimmers should have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average daily short swim distances of 2km.
Please note that adults that are not travelling with their own teenage children or are part of a party with at least one teenage child are not permitted on this trip. Equally, teenagers must be accompanied on the trip by at least one adult.
