Yes, Monday through Thursday. We have set aside time each day, except for Fridays, for your child to swim. Fridays are planned for special events that may require a bathing suit. Please send your children to summer camp with the appropriate swimming gear (ie. Towel, US Coast Guard certified life vest, bathing suit, goggles, swimming cap-if needed, etc.) The spray park at Carteret Park will be available every other Friday.
