Information

Urban Swim Program

Urban Swim Program was founded in 2011, we are a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization. Our mission is to promote diversity in the sport of swimming by providing affordable community driven programs that not only teach a life saving skill but create an environment that fosters self empowerment, achievement and discipline.

Urban Swim Program provides low cost or free swim lessons and programs to those in Camden, New Jersey and supports the development of programs in areas targeted towards diverse populations, those of a low socioeconomic status and/or minorities.

Along with promoting diversity in the sport of swimming, we want to target the drowning epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 14 years old. Teaching children simple techniques such as how to float, kick and tread water, and teaching them water safety basics, will in turn teach them to save their lives.
