North & South Shuswap Community Resource Association. British Columbia- Sorrento
Summer Swimming Lessons in the Lake addresses the need in these lake communities in rural areas for children to have adequate swimming skills and confidence in the water. Children who are confident in the water and have learned adequate swimming skills influence an increase in family visits to local lakes and make swimming a routine part of their spring and summer activity.
The lessons are facilitated by qualified Red Cross Water Safety Instructors and will offer eight weeks of lessons for 150 participants ages 3 to 14.
