Swim Lessons for 2021

Campers’ registration fees include a half-hour afternoon Red Cross certified daily swimming lesson, weather permitting. Because of the cold water temperatures swim lesson will not start until July 5th. On Mondays at 12:50pm 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 your swimmers return to the level they last achieved in Bay View. If you are not sure what level that was we have records for the last two years and can assist with correct placement. See below for 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. 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 you feel your swimmer needs some extra attention or focus to move to the next level, private lessons are available.

Level 2 & 3 1:35 – 2:05pm
Level 2 & 4 2:10 – 2:40pm
