Swimming at Camp

We are delighted that children are able to swim each day they attend Camp using Saxon's very own pool, reserved solely for use by Summer Camp.

Here's what you need to know about our pool:

  • Our pool is 15 metres long by 6 metres wide.
  • The depth is 1 metre throughout.
  • A maximum of 37 children can use the pool at any one time.
  • Every Camp attendee will have the opportunity to the use the pool daily. The time of any swimming session may fluctuate each day depending upon the level of demand and other activities being run.
  • There will be a member of Lumen Camp staff present during all swimming activities.
  • There will be a fully trained and accredited lifeguard present during all swimming activities.
  • Children will use the pool with their daily group to ensure every swim session is enjoyable and age appropriate for all.
  • For our youngest children we understand that they will need additional help changing for swimming and our Camp staff are on hand to assist them. 

When completing a booking for your child, we ask whether they can swim 15 metres.

  • If you say ‘No’ you must ensure that your child comes to Camp with a suitable buoyancy aid, clearly named.
  • If you answer ‘Yes’, please be advised that your child will need to demonstrate their ability to the lifeguard by confidently swimming 3 widths of the pool. If they put their feet down or display a lack of water confidence, they will need to come to Camp with a suitable buoyancy aid, clearly named before being able to use the pool.
  • Suitable buoyancy aids include swim vests or arm bands as they allow your child to keep their hands free to take part in any games in the pool and can be quickly put on and taken off.

Please ensure your child brings to Camp:

  • A named swimming cap which must be worn at all times when using the pool. Please ensure the swim cap is of the traditional style which stops hair from entering the water rather than the modern style hat with flaps designed to only offer sun protection.
  • A named towel.

If your child has any specific needs regarding swimming please contact us at summercamps@lumenlearningtrust.co.uk to discuss in further detail.
