Jamie’s Swim Camp Fills Up

Jamie Patrick has closed out his Swim Camp in Hidden Valley Lake from May 17th-20th for 2012. “We have 50 swimmers coming from Pennsylvania, Colorado, Utah, Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, and California.

The campers will participate in over 800 miles of open water events this summer and will use the camp as part of their training.

The second Swim Camp will be held in Lake Tahoe in late June or early July. “We are working on the Lake Tahoe Swim Camp now with details to come soon for interested marathon swimmers, channel swimmers, adventure swimmers, triathletes and anyone else who enjoys the camaraderie of swimming with others. Last year was a blast
,” described Jamie. “The goal is to leave camp in better shape than you came. We will continue the tradition of our night time swim. Friends and dogs are welcome.”

There will be two organized swims a day, including a night time swim. Participants can swim as much or as little as possible. One swim will be 5 miles, done at Clearlake with a support boat. The water temperature in Hidden Valley Lake, located about 1 hour 45 minutes from San Francisco, is expected to be between 65-69°F (18-20°C).

For US$15 per person per day, the camp, camaraderie, and all food and drink including breakfast, lunch and catered dinners (meat or vegetarian), are included.
