One size does not fit all
Our swimming program has always been the heart of a Nabby summer. We take pride in our 3 swimming facilities and the quality of the instruction our campers receive in both water safety and swimming skills.
With swimming instruction taught to all campers in their morning swim, our two smaller, shallower and heated pools provide excellent aquatic areas to build confidence and skill levels. Our new larger pool offers the best of any camp in Northern Westchester. From a spacious shallow water teaching area, to a 10’ deep diving board and slide area, we can provide the best challenging instruction to even the highest quality swimmer.
In addition to these morning swims, all campers also swim again in what we call a “free swim” each afternoon. This longer swim allows campers the opportunity to socialize with friends and enjoy what summer is truly about—having fun in a pool with your best friends.
Our pool staff teach all lessons and all are certified lifeguards and/or water safety instructors.
The Shallow Pool
Gently graded from 2ft to 3ft, our shallow pool is kept at a balmy 81°. It’s perfect for non-swimmers who know their feet can always touch the bottom, yet deep enough to learn beginner swimming skills.
The Middle Pool
3ft deep at the shallow end and 5ft at the deep end, this pool is also kept at 81°. It’s just the right environment for learning intermediate swimming skills. Because the water depth can be over their heads, campers must demonstrate adequate swim skills to be in this pool. Safety first — always.
The Big Pool
Our largest pool goes from 3ft 5in to 10ft deep, and has a diving board and slide in the deep section. Wheeee! The shallow section (3ft 5in to 5 ft) is 50ft long, which can accommodate a whole lot of kids, and is great for instructional swims across the 35 ft. width of the pool. Swimmers must be able to swim the pool’s entire 90ft length to use the deepest section, the slide and the diving board. Then there’s no stopping’em!
