Our goal is to make every child ' s experience a positive one ! At Camp Ganim each swimmer will earn a certificate at the end of the summer highlighting their accomplishments and swim level . The 30-minute instructional swim at Camp Ganim is led by Aquatics Director and Ganim Swim Coordinator Myles Phelps , who is a Certified American Red Cross Lifeguard and Water Safety Instructor .

Our swim lessons follow the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim levels , the same that are taught at the Weinstein JCC year-round swim program .
All pool activities are supervised by a Pool Deck Supervisor as well as American Red Cross Lifeguards . All Weinstein JCC staff are required to be CPR / First Aid / AED certified and receive ongoing training .
