All Items for: Swimming Lessons: Glendalough State Park

Sessions run for one week, Monday-Friday at Glendalough State Park

 

In cooperation with the Fergus Falls Area Family YMCA, WCA Community Education is happy to provide swimming lessons for kids ages 5 and up. All lessons are American Red Cross Certified Curriculum taught by trained American Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructors. 

 

Instructors will not have very much time between lessons, so swimmers are asked to be ready to begin their lesson immediately at their start time. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch lessons. If parents leave the swimming area during lessons, they are asked to be back promptly at the end of the lesson. Instructors will not be able to supervise swimmers in the water who are not in a lesson. Swimming lessons meet regardless of the weather. If it is unsafe to swim due to weather, safety skills will be taught in the shelter located near the beach. 

 

Cost: $55 per swimmer
