Camp Menlo Jr

Menlo Swim and Sport offers Camp Menlo Jr for kids age 4.5-6!
For our little ones, Camp Menlo provides fun, instruction, and encouragement in a safe, friendly environment. Each camper receives a daily 45-minute swim lesson from a Menlo Swim School instructor, plus has time for land games, crafts and a light lunch. They’ll enjoy community and team fun while developing a love of water and swim skills. Your child should come home healthy-tired but not destroyed for the rest of the day!

When you check out each day, stick around to enjoy Open Swim with your child. Spending time in the pool together reinforces what they’ve learned and improves their feel for the water. Open Swim starts at noon!
