Swim Safety

Safety is our number one concern.
We understand your concern for the safety of young swimmers. Please be sure to read our complete "swim safety rules and policies."

Quest for the Gator Cup

One of the traditions we are most proud of is our weekly "Quest for the Gator Cup". Since 1996, this fierce, but friendly, competition has pit our Safari friends (Iguanas, Parrots, Treefrogs, Cheetahs, Elephants, and Gators) against one another in a week-long competition that we call the "Quest for the Gator Cup". Each team consists of campers of all ages and from all Specialty Camps and their counselors. At the end of each week, every camper receives a commemorative ribbon celebrating their participation in this one-of-a-kind event.

The Gator Cup is sure to be the highlight of every camper's week and something they will remember for years to come.
