SWIM CAMP ─ SWIM DEVELOPMENT SAFETY & MORE

With over 20 years of instructional experience in Westchester, it is our mission to improve every camper's swimming abilities. Incorporating the American Red Cross Learn to Swim program, teachers and  coaches provide each swimmer with the opportunity to improve their comfort, endurance, and technique in our 25 yard NCAA pool. Swimmers also learn fundamental snorkeling and diving skills to enhance their aquatic experience. To round out their day, campers participate in fun and engaging dryland activities.

Westfair Swim Camp focuses on individual skill development and water safety for all swim levels. Swimmers will be instructed in small groups of similar age, skill, and experience for an optimum learning environment. Lesson plans are formatted in logical progressions guided by the American Red Cross Curriculum.

The focus for the higher level swimmers is the refinement of the competitive strokes, cardiovascular endurance, starts and turns as well as techniques to increase efficiency and speed. This group also enjoys Fundamentals of Lifeguard Preparation, development of their own "photographic eye" for aiding with lessons, and review of their personal strokes and development.

Westfair Swim Camp staff includes seasoned American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors, Lifeguards,  swim coaches, and professional teachers selected not only for their expertise in teaching aquatic skills but also their ability to provide exceptional role models for our campers.

The camp's emphasis is swimming, but additional dryland activities are included, such as field games, fun fitness, and a special activity that changes daily. Campers return each year because parents see a noticeable difference in their swimming abilities, and campers have fun in a safe environment.

Jonathan

Westfair Swim Camp was terrific! We originally enrolled for just 3 weeks but ultimately decided to extend for the full 5 weeks. My 5 yo twins truly enjoyed the camp. It was well organized and had a good mix of swimming instruction and summer camp activities.

Gerald

My daughter, Jillian, has been attending swim camp for the past seven years, and we can't say enough to highly recommend Westfair Swim Camp!! This camp is well organized with a full day that includes activities, crafts and swim instruction. The dedication of the counselors under the direction of Kate Palladino is second to none with their utmost attention to swimming skills, as well as, safety in and around the water!! Many thanks to the entire staff at Westfair Swim Camp for a top notch experience year after year that always leaves us looking forward to each and every summer at swim camp!!

Jan

"Wilson took another lifeguarding course in NJ and he told he learned nothing compared to the training you gave him. He says "Kate's training was a real lifeguard training." Thank you so much, it really makes a difference."

Evelyn from Tuckahoe

"Casper has really improved and all thanks to your program! It's very cute but he tells me every day: "They really know what they are doing here! They give you tips while you're swimming. They're great!" He's a total kitty cat in the water so this is a GLOWING recommendation!"

Lisa from Larchmont

"Rarely to never has Rory called me and told me what an awesome experience he had. He told me that your lifeguard teaching style was to not move on until everyone was caught up. He learned so much and felt like he had a real work out! I only wish he had you for Chemistry!

Colleen from Westchester

My daughter completed your lifeguard program. She just completed her CPR training (again) for the ambulance corp. The instructor commented on her depth of training and knowledge with CPR that which she learned from you. Just thought you might like to know! Thanks."

Krista from Pleasantville

"My twins had different skill sets, interest and strengths. They tailored their instruction for each of my kids. We highly recommend this camp!"

Gerald from Armonk

"Just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for another great swim camp. My children had a blast. Your staff was great. Your swim camp is number one on their list between all the other camps they attended."

Shideh from Bronxville

" I wanted you to know you are a 'rock star' in the Lifeguard world. You are very respected by pool supervisors and so my certificate is holding weight and not just being looked at as from some fly by night school."

Maryann from Irvington

" I have found Kate to be a professional, going above and beyond the call of duty. Kate maintains a great program with very high standards for herself and staff members. After attending other swimming organizations and experiencing frustration and disappointment in the past, I can honestly say that the Westchester and Fairfield Program is outstanding!"

Carolyn from Chappaqua

"I wanted to let you know that we received the certifications today and to thank you so much for the course. My son has been telling us how beneficial it was for him. He seemed amazed that it could be so much better than the other courses he has taken. I was a lifeguard myself and a volunteer EMT so I appreciate the fact that you inspired my son."
