Swimming at Camp Laney is supervised by American Red Cross certified lifeguards. Campers play water basketball and other water games and sports during their activity time. The most popular activity at the pool is the water slide, which has two different slides.
In addition, the campers participate in numerous swimming exercises. Each exercise is given a point value and based on the number of challenges a camper completes and points achieved, he will receive a Beginner, Intermediate, or Master Aquatics patch. There is also supervised free swim at the pool before lunch and supper.
