Adult Swim Summer Camp

Dedicate your summer to learning how to be happy in water, shallow and deep, pool and ocean with Miracle Swimming School for Adults. It’s fun. It works. A one-of-a-kind program.

Start where you are today and go at your own pace. Thirty-three class sessions, ninety-nine hours, ten weeks. We cannot guarantee where you’ll end up.

At left is the story of Vernon who began December 5, 2022 and finished all five or our core courses January 6, 2023. Watch his progression, a normal Miracle Swimming experience, and see what’s possible. Do this in Summer, 2023 and emerge the swimmer you’re born to be in August.

December 5

His previous instructor told him he couldn’t float.  But once he felt the water hold him up in the shallow end on Day 1, he asked if it would hold him up in the deep. Now he was curious.

He knew he could stay in control so he disconnected the tether.

The tether speeds up learning.

Each person’s timing is different but the learning steps are universal. Take the time you need for each one. No rush.

Learning to swim includes learning how the water works. You want to be able to maneuver and always be in control. True?

Ocean 101 course
December 31

The Gulf of Mexico was 61 degrees when we started, and 66 on this day. He gained an understanding of his buoyancy in salt water and became comfortable with moving water. He floated, swam, and dived into the waves in Ocean 101.

Floating in the chop of Sarasota Bay January 6. Oops! Camera was set on the wrong speed! But you can see what he’s comfortable with. This is the culmination of our 5 core courses.
