Swim & Gym 2022
Open from 8:30 am to 5 pm M - F
Swim & Gym Overview
Swim & Gym is our summer program (June- August) of 8 weeks of all-day fun and activities for kids going into 1st-6th grades. Each day at Swim & Gym will include swimming, lawn games, crafts, singing, Bible Time, and making good friends. Thursdays are field trip days where we go to various locations around the Bay Area!
We also have the Leader in Training (LIT) program for incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th graders. LITs will have opportunities to set expectations for, inspire, and motivate themselves and even others in a positive way. To help LITs achieve this goal, staff will model good group management skills and give LITs a chance to take on purposeful roles. Each LIT will have opportunities to lead an indoor and outdoor activity so that for at least part of the day they are leading a group. This may be as simple as reading a book to campers or teaching campers a game.
Due to COVID-19 Swim & Gym, summer camp will look different than previous years, but PCC SACC staff are still committed to providing a fun, unforgettable summer experience for all our campers! Last summer, we were one of the few summer camps open. We are committed to maintaining a safe environment for all campers.
1) Rooms will be sanitized throughout the day. Then the rooms will be cleaned and sanitized each night.
2) There will be a Health and Safety Officer whose job is to ensure that the COVID-19 standards remain consistent throughout the day and summer. S/he will also be performing health and safety checks during the sign-in process.
3) Groups will be kept to 12 campers.
4) Access to the swimming pool is still pending for this summer, but we will keep parents updated when we find out more information. We are looking forward to playing water games either way!
5) Swim & Gym is planning on returning to our weekly field trips on Epic Thursdays! We are looking forward to having tons of safe fun in different locations around the Bay Area.
**Also, please be aware that these modifications are subject to change based on what color tier San Mateo County is in during summer. We are committed to communicating any changes to families asap.

Programming: What Happens at Swim & Gym
* All activities are subject to change
Choice Time consists of the classic fine motor, gross motor, and cognitive learning categories. Here at PCC SACC, we are making efforts to provide campers with a chance to explore beauty (creativity), abundance (entrepreneurship), and order (science) through our camp programming.
Each week Choice Times will change and bring new, fun activities for all our campers.
Snacks & Lunch
Swim and Gym provides 2 snacks daily for campers and staff at 10:30 a.m. and around 3 p.m. depending on afternoon schedule. Each snack needs to offer a minimum of 2 food groups. To count, each food offered must have significant nutrition with a low fat or sugar content. As with lunches, if your child has a food allergy or is a picky eater, please pack a snack for your child as well.
Please pack a healthy lunch for your child each day, except for Epic Thursdays when we serve pizza (there will be a gluten free option) for everyone on the PCC lawn. If your child has a food allergy or is a picky eater, please pack a lunch for them on Thursday as well.

We know that your Middle School student needs something special to keep them moving and having fun all summer long. Our LIT program is designed to engage all campers going into 7th, 8th, or 9th grade. Leader In Training is a week filled with Middle Schoolers' opportunities to discover, lead, and go!
Each LIT will be assigned to a group and will get opportunities to lead and help out the counselors throughout the day. Additionally, the LITs have their own counselor who spends time with them, bonding and helping them what it means for them to be a leader.
