Swim Lesson Scholarships Available

 A limited number of Group Swim Lesson Scholarships are available in 2022 thanks to a grant from the Charlevoix County Community Foundation. The scholarship includes one group swim lesson package (usually 6 classes) along with five vouchers to use the pool for free during open swim times . The swim time vouchers were added to help students practice what they learned in the swim classes. Once awarded, the scholarship may be used at any time in 2022 and the open swim pool time vouchers can be used at any time within 12 months of taking the swim lesson. Group swim lessons are posted on our website and pre-registration is needed.
