outdoor swim lessons in the poconos

Join us at Camelbeach Outdoor Waterpark this year as we introduce our brand new swim lesson program! For the first time ever, we are offering swim lessons to our young swimmers in a safe and fun environment. Our lessons are designed for children ages 6 months to 15 years old and maximum of 40 participants. Water safety is the main goal our lifeguards want to teach young swimmers.

Lessons will be held on Wednesdays (7pm-8pm) and Saturdays (9am-10am). We kindly request that you arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the lesson to allow ample time for preparation. Each lesson will be 45 minutes to 1 hour in duration, providing your child with plenty of time to learn and enjoy the water.

Parents, we’ve got you covered too! While your kids have a blast splashing around, you can relax on the side and enjoy the fun atmosphere. For more information on the lessons and exploration class, please click here.

*July 10th and 17th lessons will be held from 5:45pm-6:45pm.

You can select more than one lesson and dates you would like your lessons at checkout. View park map here.


Lessons will be 1 hour with a 10 – 15 min evaluation for first-time participants.

When you arrive for your lesson, please meet outside of Guest Services and a staff member will meet you to bring you to the lesson area.

All lessons will be on Wednesdays (7pm-8pm) and Saturdays (9am-10am)*. Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the lesson time to have enough time to get ready. The changing area and bathrooms are located near the Wavepool.

*July 10th and 17th lessons will be held from 5:45pm-6:45pm.

The lessons are available for: 6 months-5 years (parent is required to participate in class) and 5-15 years old

Based on skill level and the size of class, the classes will be located in the Olympic Pool or Wavepool at Camelbeach.

The child and the parent can add-on a discounted ticket to Camelbeach for your lesson day. You can also purchase additional Camelbeach day tickets during checkout.

Each person will be split into the skill level they have. We will have four levels: Water Exploration & Safety for parent and child, Lil’ Guppies (Preschool), Minnows (Beginner), and Barracudas (Advanced Beginner).

The lesson schedule:

  • Saturdays – 9am-10am (6/22, 6/29, 7/6, 7/13. 7/20, 7/27)
  • Wednesdays – 7pm-8pm (6/26, 7/3, 7/24, 7/31)
  • *July 10th and 17th lessons will be held from 5:45pm-6:45pm.

For each lesson, we will have a maximum of 40 participants. The instructor to student ratio is 1-10 for swim lessons. For water exploration is 1-10 but every child needs a parent or guardian in the water with them.
