What to Bring

All campers that will be swimming in either pool will need to bring the following to camp:

  • Bathing suits: are strongly recommended for all camps. Classic campers will swim and Specialty and Sports campers may have an option to do inflatable fun during the week. We leave our bathing suits at camp all week, depending on your campers swim time and day, so no need to remember to bring them back and forth each day. Swim days and times will be communicated the week prior to your campers start date. 
  • Goggles are no longer required, but recommended. Please label!
  • Towels: We provide towels here at camp so no need to bring your own!

Please see your specific camp details page to see what items we recommend for each type of camp.

Swim Locations

All Swimming will now be off-campus. Our own BB&N bus drivers and buses will bring our campers to Brandeis University for swimming. All of our campers will be supervised by our own BB&N camp staff and counselors, including swim supervision by Brandeis University lifeguards.

Brandeis University Pool

The Brandeis University pool is a pool facility perfect for our campers to both take swim lessons as well as enjoy the pool in free swim time. The large 8 lane competition pool with 8 starting blocks is kept at a temperature of about 80 degrees. Additional BB&N staff will be on deck to support campers and lifeguards as needed. Brandeis is about 25 minutes from BB&N, but with an hour in the water at a university-sized pool, we are sure our campers are going to love this option!
