Where swimming lessons meet nature exploration, join VINS and Storrs Pond for a week of exploration and aquatic escapades.* Students will learn swimming fundamentals from the experts and discover why humans have been so inspired by a frog’s kick, a turtle’s stroke, and the beats of a butterfly’s wing. Storrs Pond swim instructors will build campers’ confidence in the water during daily swimming lessons while VINS educators will cultivate your child’s curiosity for science and the great outdoors as they lead adventures in the wetland habitats around the pond. Through swimming, play, and nature exploration, campers will learn how plants and animals have adapted to a world where water truly is everywhere.

 

*A certified lifeguard will be present during all swimming and boating activities.
