2020 Bauerle Bulldog Swim Camps



 The Bauerle Bulldog Swim Camps are for competitive swimmers of all levels. Ages 8 to 18 are eligible to register for camp.  We ask that the younger campers be able to swim 1 length of each of the 4 competitive strokes (Fly,Back, Breast, Free).


The Standard Bauerle Bulldog Camp:
The five day Bauerle Bulldog Camp really concentrates on proper technique with one stroke per day and is broken into 2 two hour water sessions and a one hour lecture. During the morning (SCY) session the campers will work in stations. During the afternoon session (LCM) the campers will be in more of a workout setting focusing on the stroke of the day. The youngest(least experienced) group will swim both sessions SCY and have their station work during the afternoon. Private lessons are offered during midday for an extra fee.


Standard Bauerle Bulldog Camp:


Morning Session 9:00-11:00am.

The morning session (SCY) will focus on stroke technique, we will work on one stroke each day. The session will be broken up into stations that will include Film study, Drills, watching yourself on film, and swimming  technique/turns.



The campers will get to hear from and speak with Coach Jack Bauerle and Coach Humphries along with a number of our elite and Olympic swimmers training here at the University of Georgia.


Session II 4:00-6:00PM

This session will be Long Course Meters for all but our youngest group. It will be a training/technique session that covers the stroke for that day.


Private Lessons:

Private lessons are available during the 5 day Bulldog sessions of camp as space allows, they are popular and fill up fast since there are only 24 spaces available per camp. The cost is $105 which includes three 30 minute private lessons with a camp coach, underwater filming of each stroke that is placed on a DVD to be taken home and a stroke evaluation sheet that is filled out by the lesson coach. Private lessons are only available to campers that are 13 years of age or below!

Starts and Turns Camps:
The Starts and Turns Camp will feature four 2 hour water sessions and several video sessions that will focus on learning about and improving on those skills. This camp has low participant cap which allows for a lot of individual attention and feedback for each camper. This camp will be SCY and will focus on starts and turns for each stroke, the back to breast IM turn and well as breakouts and finishes.

Weekend Camps:

This year we have added a weekend camp which is limited in number. We will be working on all the strokes in various sessions throughout this camp.

Multiple Camps:

Many Campers participate in both the Standard Bauerle Bulldog Camp and then the corresponding Starts and Turns Camp. The camps are back to back to make this transition as easy as possible. Campers that are staying for both camps will eat lunch right after the awards ceremony following  the Bulldog Camp and head back to the dorm with the staff. They will not need to check out/in between camps.  It is perfectly fine to be enrolled in both Starts and Turns 1 and Full Camp 2 but all campers must be picked up and checked out of the dorms between those two camps as the dorm is closed on that in-between night.



The campers will be eating all of their meals (besides the 1st night) at one of the UGA award winning dining halls. The food at our camp has always been one of the items that is talked about the most. We make sure that they are fed well and have healthy choices available.

Food Allergies:

Any camper with a food allergy must speak with the coaches during check in. We can have the staff nutritionist walk you through the dining hall and go over your food options with you.



Airport pickup/drop off is available for those that need it. The cost is $75.00 and will include both pick up prior to camp and drop off after the last session. Flights into Atlanta should arrive around 11am and departure should be no earlier than 5pm. Contact us with flight schedules to go over specifics in advance.
