The Bret Harte Aquatic Center is a  public swimming facility located on the Bret Harte High School campus in beautiful Angels Camp, California. The pool is 30 meters by 25 yards with a zero entry beach access area. Our mission is to provide a safe, clean, healthy and fun swimming environment for people of all ages. Whether you are searching for some fun in the sun or looking to improve your health and swimming skills, we have something for you.

We offer Public Swim times, Lap Swimming,  Water Aerobics and Water Zumba classes.  Group swimming lessons are offered throughout the summer, and private swim lessons for all ages are available February through September. The Bret Harte Aquatic Masters adult swim team works out here. During the summer we have our Recreation Swim and Water Polo League. The facility offers full locker rooms with restrooms, changing area, lockers and showers.

Most importantly it is the goal and responsibility of the Aquatics Center to assure the safety of the participants in the activities offered.  Safety will be assured by providing Red Cross trained and certified Lifeguards to help run a secure facility and quality programs designed to teach personal water safety skills, lifetime fitness, life skills and fun.


The Bret Harte Union High School District shall ensure equal opportunities for all students in admission and access to the educational program, guidance and counseling programs, athletic programs, testing procedures, and other activities.
