Spring Swim Lessons

Learn to swim with Campus Recreation. During the spring and summer, we offer group and private swimming lessons for learners of all ages. Due to the many skills required at each swimming level, it is not uncommon for students to repeat a class. We try to accommodate additional classes based on demand and available pool space, however we reserve the right to cancel or combine classes with fewer than three participants. After taking a class, if you or your student advances to the next level please be sure to notify the Youth Programs Administrative Office via email ( on the last day of the lesson so we can move students, based on availability, into the new level.
