Camps include a full lesson set, dress up days, games, crafts and snacks.

The pool offered a toonie swim on Canada Day this past Sunday, but will be offering another toonie swim on August 4 for BC Day from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. There will be pool games and fun for everyone.

On Tuesday, July 13 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. there will be a youth pool party for teens to participate in pool games and win prizes.

Preschool and Red Cross swim lessons are also being offered over the summer.

Preschoolers swim lessons are July 14 to 25 or August 4 to 15.
