Volunteers are needed from age 15 to 150! No advanced swimming experience is required, just be comfortable in the water! You will be responsible for the same swimmer all week, encouraging, motivating, and supporting them in the water. Full training is provided.

iCan Swim is a five-day camp that is designed to help people achieve their aquatic goals and learn valuable water safety skills. Swimmers aged 3 and up are welcome, ranging from no swim experience to swimmers who would like to improve swimming skills.

Volunteers can choose one or more 60 minute sessions that run from 9am- 4:15pm. We ask that you plan to attend the same session each day, as you will form a bond with your swimmer and their families and consistency is very important for the comfort of our swimmers!
Volunteering for one session will add up to 6.25 service hours!
