Boyden Pool


The Championship Swim Camp has been training and instructing swimmers for over 28 years. Each year our campers finish their week at UMass with a smile on their faces, improved swimming technique, and plans to come back the next summer. Located on the beautiful UMass at Amherst campus in western Massachusetts, the camp utilizes the University’s facilities. The camp uses the school’s three 25 yard swimming pools and divides into different groups of various ages and ability levels. All campers receive instruction from our professional staff of College and High School coaches and collegiate athletes.

Our goal is to present a well structured, multi-faceted camp that will allow swimmers to develop their talent in the pool and have fun while doing so. Along with swimming, training, and lectures, campers participate in group activities and events. Come join the fun!

Camp and Clinic Highlights

  • Championship Swim Camp provides its participants with an excellent opportunity to improve their swimming skills in the four competitive strokes and their associated starts and turns.
  • Two swimming sessions are held each day, emphasizing stroke technique improvement. Each day one stroke is highlighted in lectures, drills and video taping.
  • Resident campers stay in the UMass dorms and eat in the dining halls. Some of the resident campers have an evening swim session, while all are involved in activities such as a scavenger hunt, field games, and the camp talent show.
  • Commuters eat lunch in the dining hall and are involved in two water sessions per day along with classroom time and interactive activities in and out of the pool.
