The pool completes the summer

Every splash satisfies. Every lesson empowers. Every swim is an adventure. There’s no better way to take on the heat of the summer than a dip in the water. That’s why no matter which Quest campers pursue, they all have the opportunity to experience the pool.

Each age group enjoys one period of recreational swim and one period instructional swim a day. From swim skills to water sports, campers of every age and level gain the value they need and the fun they seek!

Slide right in & mix sports with swim

At Island Quest, we strive to make swimming as exciting as any of our unique adventures. During their free time in the pool, our campers can all experience our all-new slide, see who can make the biggest splash, and enjoy their favorite sports in the water with our water volleyball net, pool basketball hoop, and more.

Master the water with next level lessons

No matter how old a camper, which quest they’re in, or how long they’ve been in camp, our talented Water Safety Instructors (WSI) and certified lifeguard staff will empower them to progress and gain confidence in the water. Whether a camper is just learning to get comfortable in the water or already a skilled swimmer, our extensive program has the training they need to take their strokes to another level.
