Aquarius Watersports

For more than 14 years Camp Aquarius has provided children from the age of 4 to 18, with the opportunity to spend six weeks, becoming in tune with one of Barbados’ few natural resources:
the ocean and its near environs. We have also provided several generations with Learn 2 Swim training, and helped them to Learn to Swim in Life.

Our objectives are to encourage participants - both counselors/trainers and campers/swimmers - to think, speak and carry out actions which bring about rational, responsible and reasonable responses, so that they are:

  • able to focus
  • able to listen
  • able to observe
  • able to understand

We aim to help participants:

  • Build self-esteem
  • Develop leadership skill
  • Develop in-water proficiency
  • Develop confidence in the water
  • Develop competence in the water
  • Understand their limitations and learn to use their discretion.

We do this by using a variety of teaching tools, where campers learn to swim, kayak, snorkel and while understanding the value of our natural environment.
