Camp Hubbard Highlight

We are in the heat of summer! That means it’s time to enroll your child in summer day camps to keep them social and active for the summer months. As a parent of a particularly active child, you might be wondering what sports camps near you offer fun and safe activities. At Camp Hubbard we provide our campers with a multitude of activities fit into one week to keep them busy, active, and social!

 

Camp Hubbard offers two programs: Kids Summer Day Camp for kids ages 4.5 - 12, and a Teen Leadership Camp where kids ages 13 -16 learn responsibility by working with younger campers through mentorship, guidance, and helping them throughout their day. At Camp Hubbard, we believe summer camp shouldn’t stop for teens, there are many important benefits for teens to be involved in summer camp. And that all stems from the opportunity to learn goal setting, leadership, and communication skills they will learn at camp and carry into adulthood.

Hubbard's High Quality H2O

As a parent, you have an awful lot on your mind at all times, and one of the main areas of concern is your child’s health and safety. This is part of why most of you have chosen to enroll one or more of your children in swimming lessons, so they will be safe around water while also learning valuable skills. But when you watch your child’s swim class, you might see them accidentally swallow some water and wonder if it’s safe since countless young children (and their germs) pass through the swimming pool on any given day.

How Makeup Swimming Lessons Work at Hubbard

At Hubbard, we love seeing your little one’s face every week in class. And we hope we’ve conveyed the benefits of swim lessons, especially year round swim lessons that are attended with consistency. But, with the holidays and a busy winter season that often involves vacations and packed schedules, we also understand that there may be times when you’re unable to get to class. Not to mention, December and January are known as peak months for contagious illnesses, so there may come a time when you need to make use of our makeup swimming lessons (although we hope not!). Here are our policies:
