Who are the Counselors?
Isabel just finished her sophomore year at Vanderbilt University majoring in Communication Studies and minoring in the History of Art and Architecture. She is so excited to work at the Aquatics Program this summer! Isabel lives in Cranbury, New Jersey, and has been coming to Nassau Swim Club for 7 years - and even lifeguarded with Nassau throughout high school. Isabel loves to draw and serves as the art director for the Cranbury Arts Council’s summer musical theatre camp. She can’t wait to meet all of the kids. Go Lemmings!
Hi, my name is Alai and I am a junior from a nearby high school! I’ve been swimming in the greater Princeton area for the last 10 years and have swum and dived for the Lemmings for several years. My hobbies include baking, writing, reading, and being with my friends. I am excited to meet all the kids and have a great summer at Nassau!
What does my child need to bring every day?
Children should bring lunch, two snacks, and a water bottle for the day. There is a refrigerator on-site for your child to keep their bagged lunch cold. Please tell the counselor if your child has any dietary restrictions or allergies. We do not provide food for the counselors but it is safer for your child if they are made aware of any restrictions.
Please bring sunscreen, a pair of sneakers for activities, and a towel.
Do I need a Nassau swimsuit and cap?
No. A blue suit and cap will be fine for this summer. There is an option to purchase Nassau swim gear from Argon (the link is found on our homepage) but they may not arrive for the swim meets on time.
What happens if it rains?
Since the Aquatics Program takes place entirely outside, there will be a day when rain interferes with certain activities. There is a covered walkway that the counselors will use to entertain the kids during a rain shower. If the rain is severe or if there is a prolonged thunderstorm with lightning, you may be asked to pick your child up from the pool.
My child is not vaccinated. Will they be required to wear a mask outdoors?
According to the latest CDC guidelines for outdoor programs, the children are not required to wear a mask outside during activities. If you would like your child to wear a mask when not in the pool, please speak directly to the counselor so they can reinforce your wishes.
