Instructional swimming is provided daily. Each camper is evaluated at the end of a one-week session and is awarded a certificate of achievement. The swimming program is carried on rain or shine in the F. Harold Daniels Gymnasium indoor pool. Every aspect of safety is considered in the swimming program, which is one of the most important skills taught at our camp.
Arts and Crafts
The craft program is organized to give campers an opportunity to do some creative work with their hands in various arts and crafts.
All care and precaution will be given to ensure the safety of each camper. A physical examination by a family physician is required and must be on file prior to participation in camp activities. Athletic trainers are available during the camp day in case of injury.
Uniform and Equipment
Campers are required to wear the official Worcester Academy sports camp uniform, consisting of a T-shirt and crimson shorts, which can be purchased the first day of each session in the gymnasium store. Campers supply their own sneakers, glove and swimsuits. On cool days campers may wear jeans or long pants. The camp supplies towels daily at no extra cost.
Campers bring their own lunch (nut free) in a suitable container. Sports drinks may be purchased from a machine on campus.
Gaskilll Field and the main campus provide 11-plus acres of athletic fields for all sports. Outdoor activities are carried out on both our campus green, as well as the school’s athletic fields. The F. Harold Daniels Gymnasium provides excellent space for swimming, basketball, wrestling, volleyball and indoor track. Indoor facilities make it possible to carry on a full program regardless of weather conditions.
