Learn to Swim Vacation Camp with NYC Parks

learn-to-swim-vacation-campOver the Mid-winter Recess school break, NYC Parks offers children between the ages of 6 and 17 the opportunity to learn how to swim, stay active and exercise during their break from school. These free classes include both aquatic safety and fitness benefits and are a great way for children to have fun in the winter.

Parents interested in signing up their kids for this opportunity should reach out to one of the Recreation sites listed above to register. There are three vacation camp sessions throughout a school year: Winter Recess, Mid-Winter Recess and Spring Recess. For more information, visit www.nyc.gov/parks.
