Coordinators: PRD Staff
The Peterborough Recreation Department offers six levels of American Red Cross swimming lessons throughout the summer. 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. This schedule follows the same format as tennis lessons detailed further in this brochure. Class size is limited, so please register early.
Purpose: Offered to students with developmental disabilities. The goal is to provide the students an opportunity for social interaction as well as improve swimming abilities. The size of this group is severely restricted due to the one-on-one (sometimes 2) instruction, so please register early!
Session 1………………………………July 1 to July 5 (no class on July 4th) * 1 week class
Session 3………………………………July 22 to August 1
Classes are held at Adams Pool.
Cost: Session 1, $24/resident of Peterborough, $30/non-resident
Session 3, $48/resident of Peterborough, $59/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.
