Registration open for Worcester County Recreation & Parks youth swim lessons

Swimming is a great summer pastime. Since safety is key in and around water, Worcester County Recreation & Parks (WCRP) is offering youth swim classes at the Shad Landing pool in the Pocomoke River State Park in Snow Hill during summer 2016.

WCRP will offer three sessions of youth swim lesson, with each session lasting two weeks. Session One begins July 5, Session Two begins July 18, and Session Three begins August 1. Classes are designed for children ages three and up. The cost is $45 per child, per session, and financial aid is available to those that demonstrate the need.

The first week of Session One classes will run from Tuesday – Friday, due to the Fourth of July holiday. All other classes will meet Monday through Thursday for two weeks. If a class is cancelled due to severe weather, a makeup class will take place that Friday.

WCRP employees will work with all participants to place them in the proper level. Age, ability, and maturity are all factors used to determine the appropriate level for each child. Visit our website at www.WorcesterRecandParks.org for a complete description on the swim levels.

Class space is limited and is offered on a first come, first served basis, so reserve your spot today. For further details or to register, please contact Kelly Buchanan at 410-632-2144, ext. 2503 or kbuchanan@co.worcester.md.us.
