iCan Swim camp teaches kids and adults with disabilities (ages 3+) about pool and water safety and teaches them how to swim. The program is customized for each swimmer's abilities including introduction to water, beginning swimming lessons and skill refinement for competitive teams like Special Olympics.
You will be assigned to work with a swimmer each day of the program as they lean basic skills in the water such as entry, exit, breathing, floating, strokes, kicking and body position. You will provide encouragement and physical support as needed.
Plan to arrive 15 min early each day for a volunteer meeting. Bring a swimsuit and towel each day. Volunteers will be active for 45-60 min per session so please keep this in mind when volunteering for multiple sessions.
