Scholarships -- Children's Group Swim Lessons

A limited number of Group Swim Lesson Scholarships are available in 2023-2024 thanks to a grant from the Charlevoix Elks Club and donations from our patrons. The scholarship includes one group swim lesson package (6 classes) along with four vouchers to use the pool during Open Swim to practice swimming skills. Once awarded, the scholarship may be used at any time in 2023 until June of 2024. The open swim pool time vouchers can be used at any time within 12 months of taking the swim lessons. Group swim lessons dates are posted on our website and pre-registration is needed. All those using scholarships may only register in person at the pool. Classes usually meet twice a week after school for three weeks.


​1. Student may be a resident of any school district in Emmet or Charlevoix Counties. Student may be attending any school -- public school, home school, Catholic school or any private school. Toddlers and infants may also qualify for these scholarships as long as they meet the residency and income requirements.
