Due to COVID-19, swim camps will be offered in a limited capacity during summer 2021. The health and safety of our campers is our first priority. We have reimagined summer fun with social distancing measures in place. All of our safety measures have been approved by New York State Department of Health.  

Designed for athletes by athletes, swimmers ages 8 to 13 have the opportunity to work with AGUA coaches from our award-winning programs. Competitive swim camps feature both pool and dryland sessions, fun activities, and include a healthy lunch. Participants receive stroke analysis, nutritional tips, and personalized feedback to gain the competitive edge. Coaches educate athletes how to train smarter and swim faster. 

Please note that all swim camp registrants are required to hold a current USA Swimming membership. 

Make sure your swimmers have everything they need to dive right in on day one of camp! Please complete the forms found here.

For more information on swim camps, please contact Coach John Fedena at aguaswimcamp@asphaltgreen.org or (212) 369-8890 x2341. 

If swim camp isn’t the perfect fit, we think you will love these programs: 



Q: Do you have any pre-camp screening policies?  

A: We ask all campers and staff to self-monitor for symptoms and record their temperature for 14 days prior to the start of camp. We also ask campers and staff to refrain from travel, large gatherings, and any situations that might be considered high risk in the time leading up to the start of camp.   

Q: What protocols did you put into place for the 2021 season?   

A: We follow the most current City, State, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and American Camp Association guidelines. Our safety protocols include:   

  • Daily temperature checks and health screenings  
  • Face coverings required for staff at all times; campers wear masks when transitioning to and from activities  
  • Accessible hand sanitizer stations (Campers are greeted with hand sanitizer upon arrival, and hand washing and sanitizing is required at the beginning and end of each activity period.)   
  • Smaller group sizes  
  • Pre-packaged lunches  
  • More frequent cleaning with medical-grade disinfectant  
  • Upgraded air filtration system improves circulation  
  • Water fountains are replaced with bottle filling stations   

Q: What is your mask policy?   

A: STAFF: Staff members are required to wear a face covering at all times during the day except while eating lunch and in the pool.  

CAMPERS: Campers wear face coverings at arrival and dismissal and while transitioning from activities. Campers are permitted to remove their masks while participating in an activity with solely their group.   

Q: What happens if someone tests positive for COVID-19?  

A: If an individual tests positive, we will follow contact tracing protocols that we have in place for Asphalt Green. A group may be required to quarantine for a set period of time out of an abundance of caution. Credits will be offered to campers in any group affected by a mandatory quarantine.   

Q: What are the protocols if an individual begins to feel sick at camp?   

A: If an individual presents as sick in camp, he or she will be sent to the nurse’s isolation area and sent home immediately. He or she will not be permitted to return until they present a negative test if they are showing symptoms of COVID-19. 

Q: Will your staff be vaccinated?  

A: We encourage our staff members to get vaccinated as soon as they are eligible to do so and continue to implement all health and safety protocols that we put in place. As new information becomes available, we will make adjustments.  

Q: How is lunch distributed?   

A: All lunches are pre-packaged. All items – sandwiches, salads, fruit cups, yogurt, pasta – are individually wrapped and distributed to campers by staff. Hand sanitizer and handwashing stations are available at all times in the lunch areas.
