Swim Lessons

Swim lessons 2021-

Due to the restrictions in place for our summer camp program due to COVID-19 and the implications for our staff, we’re only going to open up registration for Session 1 on Monday, May 3, 2021. Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to offer Session 2 and 3 this summer.

GENEVA offers swim lessons to the community to help children explore, get comfortable in the water, and grow in skill level.

  • Each session meets 8 days (Tuesday-Friday for 2 weeks)
  • All classes are 45 minutes long
  • All lessons are held in GENEVA’s heated, outdoor pool


Determining the appropriate level for your child: Red Cross Guidelines

  • If your child has a Red Cross card from a swimming class which he/she passed, either at GENEVA or elsewhere, please bring it along to the first class.
  • All swimmers are tested on the first day of class to be sure they are in the appropriate level for their ability.
  • Please remember that children often need to take a level more than once in order to pass it.

Cost for 8-day session: $65

Minimum age of swimmer:

  • Preschool Levels 1-3: 4-5 years old
  • Level 1-5 swimmers: 6 years old and older
