Facilities -- Penn State boasts some of the finest swimming facilities in the nation. McCoy Natatorium has a heated Olympic-size (50m) outdoor pool; an Endless Pool Elite system, that helps swimmers analyze strokes on an individual basis; and three indoor pools: a six-lane, 25-yard racing pool; a six-lane, 25-meter instructional pool; and a deep diving well, used for start and turn instruction. The Natatorium has more than 500 lockers and a gallery that seats 1,500. The pool deck has ample space for stretching and dryland instruction. Campers will train in both the outdoor 50-meter course and the short-course, indoor facility.

Beginning in May 2015, the Dive Well and 25-yard racing pool will undergo a complete renovation, including new tile and state-of-the art starting blocks. This project, scheduled to end in August, will help keep Penn State as the premiere aquatic training facility in Pennsylvania.

Equipment -- The campers must bring their own goggles, swim suits, towel(s), tennis shoes and appropriate dry land attire.

Recreation -- During camp, the participants may spend their free time enjoying Penn State's many recreational facilities, including the outdoor swimming pool, while under counselor supervision.
