Swim Camp

For ages 6-12, Swim Camp is a weeklong opportunity for both the novice and the experienced swimmer to improve swimming skills.  Swimmers are placed into small groups by level to best facilitate learning.  In addition to instructional swim, campers enjoy free swim, organized water activities and games, and learn about water safety.  Click here for more information or to register.


Private & Semi-Private Swim Lessons

Private and Semi-Private swim lessons are available with our certified Starfish Swim Instructors for participants ages 3 years to adult.  At the first lesson the instructor will test the student(s) and complete an Individual Aquatic Plan that will be used for the lessons.  Registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  To sign up please fill out the Private Swim Lesson Application (under "Pool Schedules & Downloads") and return to Wagner Community Center or East End and Smalley Pools starting June 1.  The prices listed are for 30-minute lessons that are scheduled at times mutually convenient for you and the instructor, during open swim times.  Please Note:  For multi-swimmer lessons we do not find the other participant.
