The pool is available during Summer Camp and Family Camp only. All campers are scheduled for time daily in the pool with opportunities for additional time during clubs, polar bears, and free swim. The pool has a shallow end starting at about 1.5 feet and going to its deepest point of 6 feet. All summer campers must pass a swimming test to gain access to the deep end (including slide).
Using nature and a certain set of problem solving stratigies, experienced Camp Kitaki Facilitators lead your group through a series of events that challenge the group. We will tailor a program that focuses on your group's particular needs whether they are communication skills, teamwork, individual challenges or leadership skills. You can create a more effective working environment after you leave camp. Any group can benefit from an experience like this!
