How does swimming at camp work?
On the first day of your child’s first session each summer, their ability in the water will be evaluated. This enables our swim staff to place your child in the appropriate group for lessons. Lifeguards are always at the pool whenever children are inside the gate, and additional staff are in the water with campers during evaluations, swim lessons, and free swim. Only campers able to demonstrate ability and comfort in deeper water will wear a “deep end tag” for the session and be allowed to swim in the deep end of the pool.
Campers are not required to and do not need to bring/wear inflatable devices in the pool, but if you prefer that your child does wear them, you should send them to camp clearly labeled with your child’s name, and talk with the Camp Director or Waterfront Director. Crossroads adheres to all American Camp Association and State Department standards.

Are there lifeguards?
My child forgot their lunch! What can I do?
Does my child need to bring a lunch?
Yes. All campers should bring their own lunch every day. Write their first and last name clearly on their lunch bag when possible. The camp will store your child’s lunch in the refrigerator.
