Daily Activities: Each day SPARK will include group games, leadership and team-building activities, reading time, arts & crafts, science experiments, free play time, and swimming! 


SwimmingSAC does not provide swimsuits and towels for each SPARK Squad child. We have extra swimsuits, but we encourage parents to send children’s own swimsuits and towels and we will wash and dry and put back in their personal cubby after each swim. 

We offer SPARK swim lessons on a 2x/week schedule, M/W or T/Th; each child is tested and placed in an appropriate level upon registration. Every Friday we have open swim time with the SPARK leaders 3-4:30pm.


Snacks: SPARK Squad participates in the USDA Food Service program; a healthy snack will be provided each day when kids arrive or after swim lessons. Additionally, we do provide gluten and dairy-free options.

FALL 2022-23 School Year

The precautions we are taking to protect your family during COVID-19:


  • We do not require students or leaders to wear a mask, effective 3/15/22. We do provide rapid tests to students if they are having symptoms or have been exposed to COVID and are not fully vaccinated. 

  • Our staff members are doing frequent cleaning and disinfecting of all spaces and objects that are used during the day.

  • We will be on heightened alert for symptoms and enacting a more stringent sick policy to avoid having sick children or children with potential contagious symptoms in the program.

  • Increased frequency of hand-washing for staff and children throughout the day.
