About The Camp
Learn To Swim Program:
The primary purpose of the American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program is to help people learn to be safe when they are in, on, or around water. The program covers skills and knowledge in a logical progression for aquatic skill development. As participants develop these skills, they will become safer and better swimmers.
