All campers will have an opportunity to swim once a week at the Chartwell Swim Club located in Marlton, NJ. This beautiful swim club has 6 pools, a splash park, playground, volleyball courts and a snack bar. You can view this facility by going to their website www.chartwellfun.com.
The swim trip is an additional fee of $7.00 per day and can be found on the Field Trip Enrollment Form. You can add swimming trips by using the Schedule Change Request. Adding swimming trips must be done one week in advance by Thursday at 9:00 am. Please note if you have paid for swimming lessons, you still need to pay the $7.00 Chartwell Swim Club Fee.
What To Bring
Campers must arrive in their camp shirts, bathing suit and have a towel and their brown bag lunch packed from home to attend the field trip. They will not be allowed to change into their bathing suit at the swim club. They must have a change of clothes in their camp bag to change into when they return to ISC. All campers should have sunscreen applied before they come to camp. If your child does not have their bathing suit they will not be permitted to attend the trip. You will not receive a refund for the trip. (Do not bring money as we are not able to use the snack bar for purchases)
Campers must bring their lunch and a drink with them on swimming days. We do not provide lunch on field trip or swimming trips. They are not permitted to purchase snack on the trip.

Swim Lessons begin the week of June 23rd and continue through until the week of August 11th. There are no discounts for missed trips due to vacation, illness, or arriving after 9am. Please Note: If you have paid for the Chartwell Swim Club Lessons, you still are responsible for paying for the trip fee of $7.00.
PK & K Swim Policy
For the safety of our youngest campers, ISC has adopted a policy to keep all PK & K campers in the baby pool areas, while visiting the Chartwell Swim Club Trip. These 2 pool areas have a depth no more then 3 feet deep. PK & K campers are also welcome to play in our splash park area, while at the trip. Although we are aware that some campers are trained and talented swimmers, the majority are not. As we follow strict counselor to campers ratio’s at the pool we need to keep the PK & K group together while on the trip. Please do not ask for our child to be moved up, as we will not be able to accommodate these requests.
