Baxter Close Wet'N'Wacky Summer Camp

Baxter Close Wet'N'Wacky Summer Camp

This is a camp for children who love the water! Activities include open swim, fun at our outdoor waterpark, water safety, snorkeling, and wacky pool games! Campers will need to have a one-piece bathing suit for girls and swimsuits for boys, plus clothing and tennis shoes for outside activities. Campers will be swim tested every Monday/Tuesday morning.

If your child fails the swim test, they will need to wear a life jacket the entire week while in the pool (this may restrict them from participating in some games.) Campers will have time at the outdoor Water Park in the morning and use of the indoor pool in the afternoon. On-site “Field Trips” will come to the branch weekly!  Space is limited.
