We offer American Red Cross Swim Lessons, taught by Water Safety Instructors certified through the American Red Cross.  Swim Lessons are eight sessions long, and run Monday - Thursday.  There are limited Tuesday/Thursday evening classes available as well.  Fridays will be used as a make-up day, when the schedule allows.  See Swimming Lesson schedule for dates, times and make-up information.
