One Week International Kids Swim Camp
with certified SWIM SMOOTH coach
An international Kids Swim Camp near Prague is a 7 day full time "summer camp" type program for your child in the beautiful surrounds of the Czech Republic’s National Sport Centre in Nymburk which is located about 50km from Prague. This fantastic facility is the home of Czech’s Olympic athletes for swimming, athletics, volleyball, tennis and other sports.
Our coaches work with elite junior and senior swimmers on the Czech national team and this is a rare opportunity to get professional and international level coaching for your child’s swimming. The camp is designed to develop your child’s swimming using our highly skilled and experienced swim coaches, all of whom are either former junior and senior national record holders or physical teachers. Each day will also include fun, sporting and recreational activities to create a holiday atmosphere.
A feature of the camp is full Swim Smooth video analysis of your child’s freestyle and stroke correction of all four of their strokes. This is a powerful learning tool for adults and children alike and really accelerates their development as swimmers. You will have a complete video record of your child’s freestyle to take away on DVD and share with their home-base coaches if appropriate.
With three coaches to every twelve kids on the camp, the coaching ratio it outstanding for a camp of this type and we will keep your child trained, entertained and stimulated for the whole seven days, allowing you to relax and enjoy a fantastic week in Prague and the surrounding area. You can visit your child at the sports centre whenever you like and we will get in touch with you immediately in the unlikely event of your child having any difficulties on the camp.
Gabriella and the other coaches all speak excellent English and the camp will be run in the English language for the kids to enjoy.
Full board accommodation is provided for every child on the camp (included in price) but is not provided for parents. We recommend you stay at the nearby hotel Ostrov in Nymburk, a 50 minute journey to Prague with good transport connections or at one of the many hotels in the beautiful city of Prague itself.
