Park Royal
Swim + Trail Combo

Trail/Swim Combo Camp

Exclusively located in West Vancouver at Park Royal Mall, this program combines a half-day Trail camp with a two-hour Swim camp at our brand new Pedalheads pool. Campers must be 4 by the start of camp and must be able to confidently ride their bikes without training wheels. The trails used for this program will be relatively flat, and less technical than our typical Trail camp options on the North Shore. During the biking portion, campers will explore the paved Spirit and Capilano Pacific Trails stretching from Ambleside Park to Lonsdale Quay. Campers will be split into two groups based on age: 4-5 and 6-9.

2021 Trail/Swim Combo camps will run weekly from July-August: 9:00am-4:00pm

Registration opens April 27th at 9am PST

About our lessons

Our experienced staff run one-hour* classes to allow kids to have more practice and quality time in a fun, safe environment. With our small class sizes, our awesome instructors can get to know the children well, identify areas for improvement, and cater to individual needs. Many of our swimmers take lessons into their teens and in many cases even become swim instructors themselves!

* Note: To facilitate COVID protocols, our 1-hour lessons have been temporarily reduced to 50 minutes.

Rebranding Atlantis programs

Many people have known about our swim classes for kids as "Atlantis programs" since the 1980s! But as we added programs in more locations, it was hard for people to keep track of all the fun things we were doing. That's why in 2018, Atlantis programs changed to Pedalheads Swim.
