Swim Lessons

2018 Champlain Islands Swim Lessons

The South Hero Recreation Commission sponsors summer swimming lessons, beginner to intermediate level, for children ages 3 to 12 at Sandbar State Park. We feel strongly that swimming is an important skill for our island kids!

Sandbar* Swim Lessons (South Hero)

Session I: July 9 – 20
Session II: July 23 – Aug 3
Session III: Aug 6 – Aug 17

PLEASE NOTE: The swim lessons have moved to White’s Beach in South Hero due to poor swimming conditions at Sandbar State Park from the low lake level.

The cost per session is $10 for children & grandchildren of South Hero residents, & $145 for non-residents. Register by June 29.

Swim lessons run for eight days each session (weather permitting) & are held at various times between 3-5pm depending on swim ability which is determined the first day.
