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.
