Sioux Falls (South) Swim Camps for Kids

At SafeSplash Sioux Falls (South), we believe swimming is a life skill®, and that consistency is the key to a swimmer’s success in the water. Frequency is also crucial, and swim camps are the perfect way for kids to get a jump-start on lessons. For more advanced swimmers, these swim stroke clinics offer an effective means of improving their swimming technique.

Our swim camps span one to three weeks and students meet several times during the week for 30 to 60 minutes at a time (the exact schedule will depend on the session you choose.) In contrast, our regular group swimming classes meet once per week throughout the duration of the program.

Whether your child’s goal is to develop foundational water safety skills, shave seconds off their race time by refining their swim stroke technique or something in between, enrolling in a swim camp helps swimmers reach their goals faster. Swim camp groups are also small, with 4 to 6 students per instructor.

Space in our Sioux Falls (South) swim camps is in high demand and is therefore typically quick to fill. If you have a specific date in mind, we urge you to enroll.

The benefits of swimming camps for kids

Swimming is fun and empowering. It’s also an essential life skill that will help protect your kids around water, whether they’re playing in a kiddie pool, perfecting their cannonball technique at a backyard party or splashing around in the ocean during a family vacation. Swimming lessons equip kids with the skills and experiences they need to be safer around water, and swim camps help them acquire those skills at a faster pace.

Swim camps make it easier for swimmers to refine through stroke technique, too. Our instructors have years of experience helping kids and adults refine their freestyle technique, backstroke technique, breaststroke technique, and butterfly stroke technique.

After swim camp, you can enroll your child in another camp, or one of our other programs. No matter which swimming program you choose, your child will learn from an experienced and enthusiastic instructor who loves teaching kids.

Swim camps vs. swimming lessons

SafeSplash swim camps aren’t the same as a traditional all-day summer camp — each lesson is 30-60 minutes long and we meet more frequently throughout the week.

SWIMJAMS

Camp (2 week, 4 days)

Two week of 4 consecutive days of lessons designed to jump start skill development. 4:1 student teacher ratio. Levels grouped by beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

Our Water Safety Curriculum

When it comes to choosing a swim camp, we know you have plenty of options. We also know exactly what young swimmers and their families need to have the best experience possible. Our warm water pools and small class sizes help SafeSplash Sioux Falls (South) stand out, but it’s our proven curriculum that ensures your child learns essential swimming skills:

  • A progressive curriculum focused on water safety, skill development, and proper swimming technique for the four fundamental swim strokes.
  • Experienced, passionate, SafeSplash Certified instructors who have completed extensive classroom and in-water training programs, along with a series of instructor-shadowing sessions.
  • Our commitment to match the instructor’s teaching style to the needs of each swimmer through our SafeSplash Match program.

Regular updates on your swimmer’s progress through our skill tracking, progress reports, and Splash-N-Tell program. With Splash-N-Tell, parents are invited to the last 10 minutes of class to talk with the instructor and let their child show off their new skills.

The lesson plans we use were developed by a team of world-class swimmers with over 30 years of teaching experience. Your swimmer will learn to swim at their own pace in a learning environment that emphasizes skill retention and having fun.

Infant Swim Lessons

Infant & Toddler Swim Lessons

We offer infant and toddler swim lessons as early as 6 months of age to help build confidence and get your infant comfortable in the water. Our small ParentTot classes are a great way for parents to bond and socialize with their kiddos while teaching vital water safety skills like breath control, floating and kicking. We also offer Toddler Transition classes for kiddos ages 18-36 months. Parents join their swimmers poolside until they are ready to transition to a small group class without a parent nearby. Both classes focus on foundational water safety skills as well as developing a comfort in the water, which are crucial in developing swimming skills.

Children’s Swim Lessons

Children’s Swim Lessons

We offer a variety of swim lesson programs for children of all ages and levels. Whether your child is just starting to get comfortable in the water or moving on to more advanced techniques we have you covered. Our progressive curriculum starts with foundational skills in beginner level classes and develops swimmers to be advanced swimmers. Whether your goal is basic water safety skills or competing at an elite level, our program can take your child from bubbles to butterfly®. We offer a variety of class types from small group classes featuring a 4:1 student to teacher ratio to semi-private and private lessons.

Adult Swim Lessons

Adult Swim Lessons

We offer a variety of class types for adults from small group classes to semi-private and private lessons. It’s never too late to learn this critical life skill. Our passionate instructors can help you overcome your fear and open the opportunity of enjoying the water.

Private Lessons

PRIVATE & SEMI-PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

Our private swim lessons allow swimmers of all ages and levels to progress through our curriculum at their own pace with one of our certified swim instructors. Each 30 minute class will be customized around mastering the skills to become a better, stronger, safer swimmer. Private and semi-private lessons (two swimmers with one instructor) are great options if you are looking for more time focused on your individual swimmer or siblings wanting to be in the same class.

Special Needs Swim Lessons

SPECIAL NEEDS SWIM LESSONS

Swimming is a life skill for all and it can also have tremendous therapeutic benefits. Being in water can soothe sensory overload, provide relief from physical discomfort, and provide students with a sense of independence. In addition to teaching water safety skills, swimming lessons can also improve balance, coordination, strength, and range of motion. At SafeSplash Swim School we have a team of certified instructors with various training and experience in working with students with special or unique needs. We encourage meeting with you and your swimmer prior to starting lessons to discuss your goals and develop a customized teaching plan that meets the needs of your family.

Family Open Swim

Family Open Swim

Our family open swim is a great time to practice swimming skills outside of lessons and have fun with the whole family.
