Elementary Swim Programs

Calling all first, second and third graders!

Join the YWCA for one of our most popular aquatics programs… Elementary Swim Week! During this class, children learn the basics of swimming and how to respond in an emergency when they or a friend are in trouble. We also teach your child about boating safety and provide a lesson on canoeing.

This program is open to children in first through third grades. There is a limited amount of space in each week-long program, so register today!
