Coordinators: PRD Staff
The Peterborough Recreation Department offers six levels of American Red Cross swimming lessons throughout the summer along with an Adaptive Swim class. 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.
Purpose: Introduce small children to water in the attempt to make them more comfortable in the pool. A parent or caregiver is expected to get wet and participate with his/her child during the lesson.
Cost: $48/session/resident of Peterborough
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 1st through 5th, with no class on July 4th.
