Water Sports at Camp Walt Whitman

Imagine standing in the center of camp and looking out onto a crystal clear lake that is one of the quietest and most beautiful in New Hampshire. 

Set on the shores of secluded Lake Armington, Camp Walt Whitman offers a naturally beautiful backdrop for all aquatic activities. Campers swim and boat in complete privacy, as there are no other camps on the shores of Lake Armington. 

Campers may swim in the lake or in the Olympic heated swimming pool which is perfect for instructional swim.

Swim Instruction

Olympic Size Heated Swimming Pool

On the Waterfront, our goals are to encourage children to enjoy the water and learn to swim using the proper techniques and standards of the American Red Cross.

Certified Water Safety Instructors provide group and individual instruction for beginners up to the most advanced swimmers. With small class sizes, our campers can receive high quality instruction in a fun environment. 

We utilize our heated pool for our instruction which enables our campers to stay warm during the 50 minute swim class.
