Extended Care Swim Days


Due to ongo­ing COVID pan­dem­ic, we are not sure if the Berke­ley swim­ming pool will be open for pub­lic com­mu­ni­ty access as in past years. If we do not go swim­ming, we will take chil­dren to near­by parks.

On some sum­mer camp weeks, campers in extend­ed care will go swim­ming on Tues­day, Wednes­day, and Thurs­day at the West Cam­pus Swim­ming Pool.

Han­wen School cov­ers the cost of your camper’s swim­ming pool admis­sion fee.

If your child does not want to swim, they can bring a book to read or we can pro­vide draw­ing mate­ri­als for them.
