Below is a suggested list of equipment and apparel. Peak Performance Swim Camp is not responsible for lost or stolen articles or money. Do NOT bring valuable items to camp with you – such as laptop computers or tablets.

  • Water Bottle

* Extra Spending Money: Parents may choose to send extra spending cash with their swimmer. We suggest approximately $50-$100 to use for additional snacks and beverages, souvenirs, and/or replace broken swim gear (i.e. goggles or caps). Safekeeping of any cash allowance for overnight campers can be turned over to a camp staff member. Peak Performance Swim Camp is not responsible for valuables not under their supervision.

Food and Beverage

  • PEAK 1 and PEAK 2 (Day) campers: A catered lunch will be provided on Wednesday-Saturday.
  • PEAK 1 and PEAK 2 (Overnight) campers: The daily meal plan for overnight campers includes a healthy, well-balanced breakfast/lunch/dinner, starting with lunch service on December 27, and ending with breakfast on December 31.
  • For swimmers with special diets (vegetarian, gluten-free, nut allergies, etc); we do our best to provide a healthy lunch alternative. However, swimmers may bring their own lunch if they prefer.
  • ALL swimmers must bring their own water bottles to camp, and refill them frequently from the water coolers on deck.
  • Swimmers may also bring their own sports drink and/or healthy snacks to camp.

OPTIONAL: If campers want additional snacks and beverages, the athletic store at the National Training Center, Gear for MultiSport, is offering two great promotions to our campers. A healthy “Snack Pack” for nutritious snacking can be purchased at any time during camp for $20. Additionally, parents may set-up an account with Gear for MultiSport to their credit card to be used at their child’s discretion (for merchandise such as nutritious snacks and beverages, swim gear, sports apparel, etc.). The account may be set-up at Camp Check-In or in advance by calling +1-352-394-7434. Please see the separate Gear for MultiSport Account form.

Supervision

The safety and well-being of our swimmers is our first concern. Overnight and Day campers are supervised at all camp activities.

Camp Extras

Peak Performance Swim Camp offers a number of unique performance-enhancing extras. These may be purchased in advance with camp registration or onsite at camp.

Yoga for Peak Performance Video: NEW! The more flexible the swimmer, the greater the speed! And yoga is the perfect way for swimmers to increase their flexibility. Greater flexibility in the shoulders, chest, hips, and ankles allows the body to generate more propulsion and flow through the water with minimal drag and greater ease. The Yoga For Peak Performance video offers a series of effective yoga postures designed to relax the body and enhance flexibility in as little as 15 minutes a day! The video is available to stream online and your login info is sent to you via email at the conclusion of camp.

PEAK Refresher 2.0 Video: NEW! This one-of-a-kind video is a tremendous visual aid that compliments the technical components learned in camp and is the perfect refresher for your swimmer year round!

The video is available to stream online and your login info is sent to you via email at the conclusion of camp.

PEAK OUT! Dry-Land Video: Swimming alone cannot develop the strength, flexibility, agility, or coordination needed to perform at the elite-level. The PEAK OUT! Dry-Land video targets these all-important physical traits – giving swimmers a clear, competitive edge! The five, high-energy training circuits demonstrated in the video can be performed away from the pool and require no equipment. The video is available to stream online and your login info is sent to you via email at the conclusion of camp.
