Welcome to Black and Gold Swim Camp!

Our goal for this camp is to help competitive swimmers learn the skills they need to compete at a higher level. Our approach encompasses attitude as well as technique, with some practice time to work on new skills. Attending swim camp at PURDUE will be an enjoyable and challenging learning process. Camp will be held in the $17 million Boilermaker Aquatic Center which opened in the fall of 2001. It is one of the finest and fastest competitive pools in the United States. Camp will focus on helping you compete at a higher level. Campers will work on all of the skills a competitive swimmer needs – starts, strokes and turns – which will help drop times. Instruction will take place in small groups, for personalized attention to each swimmer’s strengths and weaknesses.
