Our swim program takes advantage of our outdoor and indoor pools! With the guidance of trained instructors and certified Red Cross lifeguards, our swim program is the right fit for everyone, from beginning to advanced swimmers.

Getting Started: Swimmers are tested on the first day of camp to determine their level. Levels change as swimmers progress.

Daily Lessons: Campers at every level receive a daily swim lesson.

Free Swim: In addition to lessons, every day includes free swim time. Swimmers can also head to the pool for “camper’s choice” time!


Our staff includes teachers, graduate students, and college students, many of whom are pursuing degrees in education, as well as high school students. All staff are carefully screened through a process of interviews, reference verifications, and background checks. All staff attend pre-camp training and meetings. A registered nurse is on duty during regular camp hours. The nurse oversees medication required by campers and contacts parents if a child becomes ill during the camp day.


Transportation is offered weekly (only) for an additional fee and will be provided by a school bus at a central pick-up spot, near your home or work. You will receive an email by 5 pm on the Wednesday before your child attends camp to notify you of the estimated pick-up and drop off times, as times and stops vary from week to week. Extended Day options do not include transportation.

Lunch: enrollment for the lunch program is weekly and must be received by the Monday prior to the week your child(ren) attends camp. Lunch program daily choices – gluten free options are available, and we are nut free. All main courses are served with 1% milk, fresh fruit and homemade potato chips.


From athletics to the arts, the 175-acre St. John’s Prep campus in Danvers offers exceptional facilities including field house, two pools, a theater, art studios, labs, turf playing fields and much more.
