No Philadelphia summer camp is complete without fun in the water. Les Petits Cherubs understands this and offers children several activities on and in the water. One of the most popular of these options is summer camp swimming. Les Petits Cherubs offers attendees the opportunity to participate in enjoyable water activities that will also leave them with an understanding of all the skills necessary to be safe and have fun in an aquatic environment.
The Physical Benefits of Summer Camp Swimming
Summer camp swimming activities offer campers the opportunity to get physical activity in a well-supervised setting. No child is left unattended or to left learn on their own. On the contrary, the staff at Les Petits Cherubs watches over children and interacts with them to teach them the techniques necessary for success in the water. These techniques are instructed in such a way that children of all levels and abilities can participate, as they are evaluated on an individual basis for current skills. This can leave parents and children alike with the opportunity to relax and understand that they are learning in the appropriate way.
Which Age Groups Participate in Summer Camp Swimming at Les Petits Cherubs?
Children of all ages can participate in swimming offered at Les Petits Cherubs’ Philadelphia summer camp. This includes younger children, beginning at three years old. Younger children are at an advantage in participating in the summer camp swimming program as starting children’s water skills early is important to getting them into the water and understanding the risks as well as how to avoid them. Our staff knows how to work with these younger children to keep them safe and learning at their particular age and skill level.
Peer Interaction Through Summer Camp Swimming
The goal of the summer camp swimming activities at Les Petits Cherubs is not simply to teach children how to move in the water, as it may be with other Philadelphia summer camp options. There is a socialization element which is encouraged as well. Participants will learn appropriate social and peer interactions and be given the opportunity to work with other children their age in the water. This is vital because it promotes healthy interactions between groups of students and provides an additional level to the program that other Philadelphia summer camp programs may not be able to.
