The first week-long session begins Monday July 30 at the Shrewsbury house pool in Ratho Mill. The camp will run Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Black Sands coaches Sarah Smith and Kyle Dougan organised the camp with children in mind. All campers will participate in activities that help them to gain basic movement skills and improve physical fitness. In addition to developing the athletic abilities of the campers, the camp will be filled with opportunities to laugh, play and enjoy the summer. There will be a variety of program sessions such as swim lessons, basic gymnastics, field sports, running, stretching and arts and crafts.

Coach Kyle Dougan said: “This is a great opportunity for children from around the island to experience the pool. Each camper will spend a good portion of their day in the water and participate in learn to swim activities according to their level. We hope that many of the campers will join us throughout the year on the swim team.”

In a release, Black Sands Swim Squad acknowledged the title sponsors Lime and Vitamalt.
