Swimming Lessons
Coordinators: PRD Staff
The Peterborough Recreation Department offers six levels of American Red Cross swimming lessons throughout the summer along with a Tiny Tots class and an Adaptive Swim class, as well as private lessons. Swimming is considered a lifesaving skill. Register your children now so they can attain this skill, which will serve them throughout their lives.


The classes meet Monday through Thursday for two consecutive weeks.* Friday is reserved as the make-up day in case of thunderstorms. Class size is limited, so please register early.  

In level 1, kids learn how to enter and exit the water safely.  One learns to bob, blow bubbles, float with assistance, glide and recover in a vertical position, roll over- front to back and back to front- with support.  Retrieve submerged objects.  Combine arm and leg actions simultaneously as well as alternatively.  Expand on fundamental aquatic locomotion and safety skills.  


Session Schedule:
Session 1………………………………*July 1 to July 5 (no class July 4th)  1 week only
Session 2………………………………July 8 to July 18
Session 3………………………………July 22 to August 1
Session 4………………………………Aug 5 to Aug 15

Level 1 lessons take place at Adams Pool.  We have stairs entering the pool so the level 1 participant can enter the pool gradually if need be.  Maximum: 6 children per class.                                                                                      
There will be a chance for your child to be pre-tested on Thursday, June 27th, 4 to 4:30pm.




Cost:   Session 1,  $24/resident of Peterborough
                            $30/non-resident
           Session 2 through 4, 
                            $48/session/resident of Peterborough
                            $59/session/non-resident      

For siblings of swimming lesson participants:   It will cost $5/session (for residents) or $12/session (for non-residents) for siblings of swimming lessons participants to play in the splash pad during the two weeks their sibling is taking lessons.  The monies are to be paid to the bathhouse staff and they will keep track up at the pool during the lesson time. This does not apply to 2019 season's pool pass holders.

Our first session of swim lessons will be only one week long from July 1 through 5, with no class on July 4th.

Lessons for Fresh Air Fund kids:  We will be offering a special time for Fresh Air Fund children during the week they are here.  Class will be held at Cunningham Pond.  Please see separate registration activity link.
