Summer Programs

Athenian Summer Programs

Athenian Summer Programs continues to offer a variety of innovative camps, enrichment classes, and activities that will make for an unforgettable summer for your child. Nestled at the base of Mt. Diablo in a setting unlike any other in the East Bay, our campers all adventure, discover, learn, grow, and build relationships with the guidance of our passionate directors, teachers, and counselors. Do something new and explore more through a custom-designed schedule to fit your camper’s specific interests and areas of growth.

*The Athenian Summer Program's number one priority is the safety of our students and teachers. Therefore, in Summer 2022 Athenian Summer Programs will be requiring all students and staff to be fully vaccinated to participate–including youth ages 5 and older. Please review 2022 Health Policies (linked to the right) for further information.

Athenian Aquatics Program

Aquatic Director: Adele Hohertz-Serpan
Eight 20-minute lessons in a session, M-TH. 
Ages 4 and up offered Session 1, 2, 3
Afternoon swim lessons available for those not in camps

From bubbles to flip turns, we offer one-on-one swim lessons to children at all swim levels. Little swimmers will discover how to fully submerge their face and blow bubbles and experience supported floating and kicking on front and back. More advance swimmers will begin to learn alternating arm action, swimming under water, and rhythmic breathing, and the major strokes. For swimmers ready for even more advanced techniques, a program can be adapted to meet your swimmers individual needs. Sorry, no make-ups for missed lessons.
