Welcome to the 2018 Swim Lesson Season! The Bolton Parks and Recreation Commission looks forward to a great year and hopes to see all the kids down at the beach this summer. Below please find useful information on the 2018 Swim Lessons. If you have any questions or comments, please send an email.

Start Date and Times

  • Swim lessons will start on Monday, July 9. The first session of swim lessons will run from Monday, July 9 to Friday, July 20, and the second session will be Monday, July 23 to Friday, August 3.
  • The duration of the swim lessons are from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for the early classes and 5:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. for the late classes. Please note, that regardless of your session time, there will always be lifeguards on duty during swim lessons. Additionally, we have again enlisted the help of our lifeguards during swim lessons to provide another level of safety as well as to provide our students with the attention they need to develop their swimming skills.
  • The swim lessons offered by the Bolton Parks and Recreation Commission are based on the Red Cross Learn to Swim Program, which teaches aquatic and safety skills in a logical progression. The objective is to teach children how to swim and to be safe in, on, or around the water. For more information on the levels offered during the summer swim lesson program, click here for information on each level.
