Pool Group Outings

Bring your camp, school, or any other kind of group to East End and Norman P. Smalley Pools! Every group is required to have their participants swim tested. These free assessments are administered onsite by pool staff. Each facility has designated swim areas for proficient swimmers as well as weaker/non-swimmers. Participants who do not successfully complete the assessment will only be limited to certain areas, must wear a wristband and must wear a fitted lifejacket when they are in or by the pool. A limited number of Coast Guard approved lifejackets in a variety of sizes are available at each facility for patron use. Patrons are permitted to bring their own lifejackets, however they must be Coast Guard approved.
