GF4 SUMMER CAMP

GF4 is short for Granite Falls Fitness, Fun, and Friends. Just like the name suggests, our half-day and full-day summer camp sessions are fitness focused. Each week campers (ages 4-11) enjoy fitness activities, special KidzFit classes, and education with friend – all centered around a fun weekly theme. Camp includes daily swim lessons and recreational swim time as well. Get more details and check out our Camp Facebook Page.

Dash n’ Splash

The Dash n’ Splash program at Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club is open to member children ages 4-12 years of age (all participants must be fully potty trained).  Registration will open the Friday before the start of each week and will be open, if there is space available, until 12:00 PM each day for that particular day.  Full payment is required at the time of registration. Fees are not refundable for cancellations within 1 hour of the start of each day’s Dash n’ Splash.

JUNIOR SUMMER CAMP COUNSELOR PROGRAM

In the Junior Summer Camp Counselor Program, teens aged 12-15 years old have the opportunity to gain camp related experience under the guidance of veteran Camp Counselors. They will interact with campers, help with activities and serve as leaders in camp spirit and motivation. As the Camp Counselors’ right-hand-person, they assist the Counselors in the day to day operations of the camp program. Most importantly, Junior Summer Camp Counselors must serve as a role model for the campers. The Junior Summer Camp Counselor program will enable teens to give of their time in a service oriented capacity while gaining resume worthy experience in our day camp setting. Details for the 2017 Junior Summer Camp Counselor Program can be found here!

GFSAC TRACK OUT CAMPS

Our track out camps are full days (8:15am-4:00pm) for kindergarten – 5th grade students that are fitness focused. Children participate in fitness activities, KidzFit classes, daily park visits, swim lessons and free swim. Additional crafts, movies, games, etc. are based around on a daily theme. Get more details and check out our Camp Facebook Page.
