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, 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.  There will be the chance for your child to be pre-tested before the fist session begins.  This will be on Thursday, June 27th, 4 to 4:30pm.

Level 2 – Must have passed or show competency in Level 1 skills.
