Summer Swim

Dive Into Fun

For more than four decades, Guilford Racquet & Swim Club has brought friends and families together through great activities and organized programming.

Along with being an athletic club, we also offer a resort-like setting around the pool coupled with professional swim coaching and lessons in Guilford, CT.

Enjoy a cushioned lounge chair under an umbrella while enjoying your book! Come by for one of our poolside events and invite your friends for a day at the pool. We have a talented GRSC swim staff that teaches swimmers everything from the fundamentals for water safety through competition-level strokes.

Summer Camp

We are excited to have our GRSC Day Camp run for another year. It is a fully-licensed day camp located at 420 Church Street in Guilford, CT, on the grounds of Guilford Racquet & Swim Club. We have an outdoor, solar-heated swimming pool, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a brand new playground, a Gaga ball pit, and more.

Our summer camp is for children ages four to twelve. Campers are placed into age-based groups. We will try to put friends together if we are given advance notice, and if they are within the same age range. Every week includes daily instructional tennis, pickleball, pool time, games, arts and crafts, playground time, DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) and Fun Fridays, among other activities. GRSC Day Camp runs rain or shine!

Each child is in charge of their belongings. Please send your child to camp with the following in a bag they can carry independently:

  • Sunscreen
  • Towel
  • Bathing suit
  • Non-glass refillable water bottle
  • Snacks
  • Sneakers
  • Tennis racquet
  • Swim goggles

Full-Day Add-Ons:

  • Daily Lunch: $40 per week (please still provide snacks)
  • Post-Care (4:00 PM – 6:00 PM): $50 per week

Day Camp Frequently Asked Questions

Does my child need to be interested in tennis to attend GRSC Day Camp?

Absolutely not! The campers will play some fun racquets games during their time at camp!

What does my child bring to camp?

Please send your child DAILY to camp with the following:

  • Sunscreen
  • Towel
  • Bathing suit (they may wear it under their clothes if they would like)
  • NON-GLASS refillable water bottle
  • Lunch
  • Snacks (two if they are all-day kids, and one if they are morning only)
  • Sneakers.
  • Tennis racquet (we have racquets your child can buy if needed)
  • Swim goggles (if needed/wanted)
  • Extra change of clothes (if needed/wanted)

Please remember to LABEL EVERYTHING you are sending to camp and that it is spelled correctly! Your child will be in charge of carrying their bag at camp, so please make sure it is a size that is manageable for them.

What does a typical day look like at GRSC Day Camp?

Activity schedules are rotating during the week. Therefore, your child may not have every activity every day, and most likely will not have the same activity at the same time each day. The following activities will be part of their session at camp: organized games/activities, sports (Gaga Ball, Four Square, Kickball, etc.), racquets fun (games using the equipment and courts for tennis, pickleball, and paddle), water play, lunch/playground time, supervised free swim, DEAR (Drop Everything And Read) and arts and crafts.

What if I need to pick my child up early or drop off late?

If you know ahead of time, you can let your child’s counselor know about the schedule change. If the change is last minute, you can contact the Camp Director.

Is my child allowed to go to the snack bar during the day with money to purchase snacks?

No. Beyond lunch, we ask that any snacks they will have are provided from home.

Where is GRSC Day Camp, and where do its activities take place?

We are located, and all camp activities occur at 420 Church Street in Guilford, on the Guilford Racquet and Swim Club grounds, across the street from the Arts Center and next to the police station.
