Swimming

Take a refreshing dip in crystal clear Franklin Lake and discover why the Camp Nicolet swimming area is second to none. There is nothing better than enjoying a dip in the lake on a beautiful, sunny summer day.

Swimming comes in two forms at camp: swimming lessons and free swim, known as ACD (all-camp-dip). For swimming lessons, Camp Nicolet follows the American Red Cross skills program. All campers are required to pass through Level 4 of the ARC skills program before being allowed to opt out of swim lessons. Safety is very important. You will be happy to know that all Camp Nicolet’s swimming staff are certified lifeguards.

When it’s time for pure fun, sign up for an elective ACD and take a ride down one of the two slides, or take a plunge in the deep end. Then hang out on one of the swim rafts or the bouncy RAVE water trampoline. We even offer classes such as water games and water aerobics.



“Thank you, thank you! My daughter had the most amazing time at Camp Nicolet this summer. She came off the bus with a big smile on her face and many memories to share with us as we drove her home. Her counselors were terrific and the nurse is great! She is more confident than ever before. She made friends that will last her a life time. She wants to go back to Nicolet next summer for 8 weeks!”
