The Camps at Granite falls Swim and Athletic Club
"You all have really made a huge impact my daughter's life! Always remember I have never trusted anyone else with her! Thanks again for the perfect camp experience!" - Jessica Olson, Camps at Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club parent
Camps at GFSAC - Big smiles, even bigger memories
When adults think of camp, it is often an image of a cabin, lake, and fire pit all set in the Summer season. Locally, this generation of kids, known as Generation Alpha, get to experience camp a whole different way. For them, camp isn't only about a cabin in the woods and somewhere you only get to go in the Summer. With so many year round schools in the area and a need for meaningful childcare when kids are out of school for long breaks each season, a whole new type of camp arose. The Triangle area has a number of great camps for kids to attend all year. At The Camps at Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club, we pride ourselves on being fitness focused in more than one way - relaxing walks where conversation is high and connections are made, unstructured and structured playground time, daily swim lessons in our indoor pool, and free swim in both the indoor pool (Fall, Winter, Spring) and outdoor pool (Summer), Kids Fit classes three times a week, including fun exercise stations, group games, and Zumba Kids, all meant to provide something different to spark each child's fitness interest. Combine that with our themed activities and you've got all that is needed to make your child's time away from school really feel like time away.
