Water Activities


All campers will find that swimming is a large part of our recreation program.  Basic swimming stroke skills will be taught.  There is also ample time to play water games and free swim with your friends.  Each camper will have multiple times to swim each day.  Our waterfront is supervised by a waterfront instructor and a team of multiple American Red Cross certified lifeguards.

Hydrosled (Red Shark)

The hydrosled is a favorite of many CWR campers.  This towable is pulled behind one of our ski boats and will seat 4 or 5 riders at a time.  Each camper will have the opportunity to ride the Red Shark with his or her boxcar mates.  Year after year this exhilarating ride leaves all campers wanting more!
