Who Are Camps For?

3 Reasons Camp Makai is the Best Choice for Summer Swim Camp in Napa
Camp Makai has been a favorite of Napa parents for more than five years! Here are 3 Reasons Camp Makai is the Go-To Summer Camp in Napa.
Swimming is one of the most fun parts of summer!
There’s nothing better than jumping into the pool with friends on a hot day and swimming until your fingers prune.
So wouldn’t it be great if you could find a summer camp where your child can have some fun in the pool?
Enter Camp Makai!
Camp Makai is one of the only summer camps in Napa that offers swimming.
Camp Makai fits in as much swimming as humanly possible between arts, crafts, and games. Sometimes our campers even have the opportunity to swim all day long! Although, we do take snack, lunch, sunscreen, and potty breaks.
Because we are a swim school first, safety is our main priority.
All swim times are fully supervised and lifeguarded, ensuring there is always a staff member present who has Red Cross certified Lifeguard training and CPR/First Aid/AED training. Each camper must also undergo a swim test so our lifeguard and camp counselors can familiarize themselves with your child’s swim abilities and determine if they are pool safe.
If your child doesn’t know how to swim or is currently learning to swim, they are still welcome at Camp Makai.
Most of our camp counselors are also swim instructors. If our lifeguard decides your child needs extra help in the water, our camp counselors are right there with them to supervise and help out.
2. Fun-Themed Activities!
Although swimming is the star of the show, Camp Makai is also popular for its fun-themed activities!
Camp Makai offers seven themes: Pirate, Mermaid, Fairytale, Surf’s Up, Aloha Hawaii, Ocean Explorers, and Little Scientists.
Our campers love these themes, but their parents love that their child is being enriched–even during the summer months–because our themed activities are part of our own exclusive camp curriculum.
Our curriculum is Montessori inspired and includes arts and crafts, process activities, and games.
Process activities? What are those?
A process activity is an experience-focused activity where campers explore and experiment with materials, tools, and art or science techniques. And let me tell you, these activities are always a hit!
Of course, we also do classic arts and crafts, so your camper has cute mementos to take home.
Looking for some example activities? Check out this post! You can even do these at home with your kiddo!

Camp Makai is incredibly fun!
We know we’ve done our job when your camper goes home with wet hair, a big smile plastered on their face, and talking one hundred miles per hour about all the fun things they did throughout the day.
At Makai Swim School, we know how important play is for a child’s development. Just like our swim lessons, Camp Makai is full of opportunities to play in and out of the pool. When it comes down to it, it's summer, and we know your kids are ready to play all day!
We must be doing something right because year after year, we get campers returning to Camp Makai excited for another summer full of fun and parents pleased that signing up their camper was well worth it!
