To customize the lessons to fit within a busy summer schedule, try private swim lessons. These are great for both adults and children. Lessons will be offered between June 22-August 3. Fees are $60 for three 30 minutes lessons or $110 for six 30 minute lessons. Two participants with similar swimming abilities can participate in semi-private swim lessons.
