Swim Lessons for 2022

Campers’ registration fees include a half-hour afternoon Red Cross certified daily swim lesson, weather permitting. This year swim lessons will begin the first week of club however because of the cold-water temperatures most of these lessons will focus on dryland exercises and swim safety videos. On Mondays at 12:50 pm we will conduct swim placement assessments for new campers. If you are returning to swim lessons from last year or the year prior, we ask that swimmers return to the level they left. If you are not sure what level you were previously in, we have records for the last two years and can assist with correct placement. Below you will find quick references for the swimming skills that will be covered in each swim Level. Please recognize that class sizes will fluctuate throughout the summer as family members arrive and depart Bay View and the daily timeline listed below may change based upon attendance. This fluctuation sometimes causes us to have to slow down, step back, and review previous instruction.

Our goal is that everyone involved in lessons learns to safely enjoy the water. If the swimmer needs some extra attention or focus to move to the next level, private lessons are available.
