All camps go swimming every day. Please pack a swim suit and towel in a separate pool bag. Your camper may opt out of swimming and participate in alternate play, provided you have discussed this beforehand with the MRU Kids administrative team.
Note: All campers need to pass a height requirement (3 feet and 8 inches) before entering the pool. If they do not meet the height requirement they are kindly asked to wear a life jacket prior to entering the pool. Our staff to camper ratio is 1:8 and during pool times we have full staff coverage in all areas of the pool (i.e. diving board, life jacket station, shallow/deep end, change rooms, washrooms, and pool deck). In addition to MRU Kids staff we have 5 to 6 life guards on duty during pool time.
Swim Test: Only for campers who are keen on swimming in the deep end. The swim test consists of a 25-yard swim, during which campers are asked to achieve the following: Jump into the pool, submerge fully, return to the surface and immediately begin swimming without pushing off the wall. Swim in a horizontal position on top of the water using a forward crawl or breaststroke.
