Answer: YES- Full Day Campers will have the opportunity to swim at least 1 time per week this summer at Lake Isle Country Club. Please note this swimming is a “free-swim” for about 45 minutes with Buddy checks every 15 minutes (as per Westchester County Health Department Summer Camp Code). This swim time will take place between 9am-10am on assigned days. On these days an early drop-off may be needed at Camp for those Campers in order to optimize the time at the pool. Information about specific Swim Days will be given after registration is complete as we need to see the make-up of the ages and grades of the campers registered. Please note Campers in 1st-2nd grade will ONLY be permitted in the Kiddie and/or Mushroom Pool at Lake Isle. Campers in 3rd-6th grade will be swim tested in order to enter the larger Pool.
