ARETE SWIM CAMP
Our Background & Philosophy
The word "ARETE" is an ancient Greek word that means "champion" or "achievement everlasting. In 2016, the ARETE Swim Camp begins its twentieth year of serving children and families through the sport of competitive swimming. The Camp is the creation of three-time USA National Team coach, seven-time national championship team coach, four-time Big East Coach of the Year, and author, Coach Chuck Warner.
Long ago Coach Warner asked himself, "If people say that success in sport is 90% mental and 10% physical, why do they spend 90% on the 10% and in a lot of cases 0 on the 90%?" At the ARETE Swim Camp, we take the Greek approach of developing mind, body, and spirit.
