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.
