Our 95,000 gallon, wheelchair accessible pool with a ramp, is used daily during Summer Camp and throughout the year on our respite weekends. We have certified lifeguards on our staff to ensure the safety of our campers and pool time is always a great way to have fun and cool off on hot days!
As well as being used for daily swim sessions, it’s frequently integrated into our programming with activities such as an evening luau, “Camp Krem Olympic Trials”, boat races and more!
Thanks to the generosity of the Raab Foundation, HARTS, and others, we have just installed a solar thermal system. In summer, our pool will now be heated to 85 degrees, as recommended by the American Red Cross. This will make for more enjoyable swim sessions, especially for our older campers. We can expect to make better use of the pool in spring and fall as well.
To make our pool deck friendlier, we have installed more than 2,000 square feet of paving stones, with help from CalStone in Saratoga. This improvement will make sunbathing more enjoyable and reduce the amount of sand and weeds that enter the pool and our pumps. This improvement, plus many rainbow colored umbrellas, lounge chairs and water toys will make our swimming pool the center of our recreational activities.
In addition to water games and sports, we also provide swim lessons to campers wanting to improve their swimming abilities.
