As Americas Swim Instructor, YMCAs across America are the most accessible community resource to prevent drowning and encourage a lifelong enjoyment of swimming. For more than 50 years, the Duneland Family YMCA has been a trusted resource for high quality swim lessons and water safety instruction. Registration is now open for the mid-summer swim lesson session. Lessons start on July 2 and run through July 29.

YMCA swim lessons increase the accessibility and enjoyment of swimming to all ages and skill levels. "All children, regardless of background, skills or age, should have access to swim lessons," said Andrew Zimmer, Aquatics Director at the Y. "Its a rite of passage that can lead to a love of swimming that lasts a lifetime, while increasing confidence, physical activity and well-being. We teach more than 300 children annually how to swim, and how to keep themselves safe when theyre around water."

To ensure that everyone has an opportunity to participate, financial assistance is available to those in need to help cover the costs.

For more information about Y swim lessons and water safety classes or open swim times at the Y, call (219) 926 4204 or visit dunelandymca.org. The Duneland Family YMCA is located at 215 Roosevelt St., Chesterton. We are a charitable nonprofit focusing on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
