Red Cross Swim

Red Cross Lessons for Kids

Swimming is a necessary skill for families living in (or visiting) lake communities in the summer months. Swimming lessons in the lake are designed to help children to feel competent and comfortable in the lake waters.

We have Red Cross Swimming Lessons throughout the summer at different locations. Lessons typically run Monday - Thursday of each week (except Holidays). 8 lessons per session.

Swim Cancellation

Swimming Lessons are an outdoor activity. In the event of inclimate weather, smoke and uncertain water conditions the NSSCR will take the direction of Environment Canada, CSRD an Interior Health around best practices. Our goal is to ensure participants receive the lesson time required to complete a program. This may mean a change of venue, change of date or alternative time to complete programming. Please be aware that when registering for an outdoor program these are realities that may result in some unforeseen changes to the planned programming.
