Total Immersion Open Water Swim Camp

Lake Wapapto, Chelan County, Manson Washington

Lake Wapato is located in Manson, Washington in the north central point of the state on the north shore of Lake Chelan. Sun shines down on the lake 300 days of the year but bring layers to shed and to keep warm: the average temperature in late June is 80 F but dips down to 55 F at night. Sometimes there are big winds. In that case we will swim in more suitable lakes in the area where the water remains calm.
IMPORTANT – The access to the lake is down, then up steep stairs. Please email if you have concerns about access.

 

This camp is designed for beginner and intermediate swimmers seeking Total Immersion instruction in the open water. Our philosophy is Kaizen swimming; creating continuous improvement by setting your intention to improve one swim skill at each session.

This is a technique-focused camp, teaching you to swim in open water with greater ease and flow, which allows you to swim long distances utilizing thousands of effortless uninterrupted strokes. Our camp is perfect for triathletes seeking to exit the water fresh and ready for the bike.

The Total Immersion Effortless Endurance – Level 1 workshop and Smart Speed Workshop – Level 2 is integrated with an open water workshop to give you an intense 3 day program.

Prerequisites

It is highly recommended that attendees be able to swim 400 yards/meters comfortably to obtain the greatest benefit from this open water experience and have some familiarity with the Total Immersion drill sequence using balance, streamline, and propulsion.
