Lauren Campion of Champion Infant Aquatics is an educator and survival swim instructor in the greater Boston area. Growing up thousands of miles away in Kailua, Hawaii, she was constantly in the water and now helps little ones learn how to safely navigate it themselves.
As a sleep-deprived new mother during the pandemic of 2020-2021, Lauren was scrolling through social media one night and came across viral videos of babies going under water and coming up to float masterfully on their backs. With a pool at home, a newborn, and no active survival swim instructors in the area, she found herself pursuing her own Infant Aquatics school. She trained in Longmont, CO under IAS founder Judy Heumann, with more than 120 hours in the water teaching infants and toddlers skills to self-rescue through the Swim-Float-Swim method in the summer of 2021.
Lauren has worked in education for sixteen years. Aside from her Infant Aquatics Survival instructor certification, she is a licensed public education administrator. She earned her BA in Psychology from Loyola Marymount University, MA in Urban Education Policy from Brown University, and is currently pursuing her doctorate of education from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell. Lauren speaks fluent spanish and has lived and worked in seven cities and two countries throughout her career.
Lauren is excited to meet your family and develop skills for lasting happy memories in the water. Champion Infant Aquatics will be enrolling a limited number of children ages 6 months to 4 years beginning in summer 2021. Se habla español.
