Learn to Swim Programs

The Recreation Department firmly believes that it is not only within our scope to offer a swim program, but it is our responsibility to ensure all members of our community have the opportunity to learn to swim and the option to pursue swimming at a high level. In addition to the classes listed below, private and semi-private swim lessons are also available with our highly trained and qualified swim instructors. If you are wanting private instruction for your little swimmer or some time to brush up on your own swimming techniques, sign up for a private swim lesson. Fees are $25 for a private and $30 for a semi-private (2 students per instructor) 30-minute session. Call (970) 748-4060 for more details. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify for free and reduced lunch through Eagle County School District.
