Briarwood’s swim staff is unmatched. All of our lifeguards are Red Cross certified. Many are additionally certified as Water Safety Instructors. Our swim staff leads instructional swim in the morning, separating our campers amongst our three pools by swim level into small groups to facilitate better learning and success. We take great pride that kids who were some of our most anxious and apprehensive swimmers as young campers have become some of our best swimmers and divers as they moved into Upper Camp.
At free swim in the afternoon, our kids get to splash, play in cool down in the pools and – if they passed the deep water test – they also get to use our huge and super fun waterslides. (We find that those water slides are great motivators for kids to develop their swimming skills and pass the deep water test!)
