Participants at the USA Swimming Foundation’s Fantasy Camps for Adult & Youth will spend a weekend on the campus of the iconic U.S. Olympic Training Center, where they’ll have the opportunity to live, eat and train like a National Team Athlete. While on campus, participants will train in the world-renowned Olympic Training Complex Aquatic Center—a state-of-the-art facility containing a 50m by 25m pool that is equipped with every conceivable training aid. The Aquatic Center is arguably the finest training facility in the world, and has been the training site for nearly every U.S. Olympic swimmer. Both camps are led by the top coaches in the world, Bruce  Gemmell for the Adult Camp and David Marsh and Todd Schmitz for the Youth Camp, and feature special guest Olympic gold medalists Nathan Adrian, Anthony Ervin, Rowdy Gaines and Mel Stewart.

"This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my swimming career. Unless you made the Olympic Team in the past, you are unlikely to experience a training camp like this. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a once in a lifetime experience." -- Patrick Weiss, 2013 Fantasy Camp attendee

"A true "Fantasy" experience. Just working on technique with Coach David Marsh for three days, arguably the top coach in the world right now, is priceless. Add to that meeting, casually hanging and swimming with, and learning from five legendary US Olympic champs in the US Olympic Training Center environment was beyond any expectations. I feel re-energized, faster and smarter in the pool already. Can't wait until my next meet to see the actual results. Would do this again in a heartbeat." -- Alex Blavatnik, 2013 Fantasy Camp attendee
