Summer Swim Lessons filled up quickly! We HOPE to be able to offer more later in the summer. Click the "Browse and Enroll Swim Lessons" link to check for openings. 

Swim Lesson cancellation policy updates:

  • Due to the nature of outdoor swim lessons in New England weather, there are times when we need to cancel with very little notice. We make every effort to check weather forecasts and cancel with advance notice (typically within a 30 minute window). 
  • Cancellations will be communicated via email and/or phone calls, so be sure we have your updated contact information. 
  • Makeup classes will be scheduled and communicated before the end of the current session.
