the building blocks of life

Along the Biscayne Canal in the pristine community of Miami Shores you will find Miami Country Day School, a PK3-12th grade college preparatory school. But before there was a school, there was a camp. Our founders knew that learning could not end with the academic year. They recognized how summertime provided a chance to build on the important lessons of the school year in a fun, relaxed environment. More than 90 years after the founding of the summer camp that started it all, the school’s advanced 23-acre campus — equipped with 24-hour security, a weather alert system, and two full-time registered nurses — continues to offer premier summer programming in South Florida. With a diverse range of offerings to choose from in 2020, you are bound to build your best summer yet.

CUSTOM FIT CAMP THAT’S JUST RIGHT FOR YOU


COMPETITIVE STROKE CAMP The cornerstone of the Competitive Stroke Camp’s success is the dedication to helping campers improve each of the four strokes when it comes to technique, training and race strategy. A balanced curriculum emphasizes swimming efficiently, training effectively, working as a team and having fun. This holistic approach to becoming a better swimmer is at the essence of “Total Performance” and is one of the reasons swimmers find success with our camps. Training is highly personalized with small-group instruction, low swimmer-to-coach environment, team and leadership building sessions, daily video analysis of strokes and classroom sessions. Most importantly, campers have FUN – both in and out of the pool – with scavenger hunts, variety shows, games and meeting new friends! The camp accommodates both the novice and highlytrained swimmer. Please note this is not a learn-to-swim camp. We recommend campers to have had at least one season of competitive swimming and know how to swim all four strokes.
