Discover H2O Swim Instruction at Lake Mascuppic Town Beach Register View Cart



Do you remember when you took swimming lessons? Most of us do. Learning to swim is a defining experience in a child's life, an experience that creates lasting memories similar to learning to ride a bike. Unlike riding a bike, swimming is important to your child's safety and development, and is a life skill. Learning to swim can be a challenging, scary experience — but it doesn’t need to be! At Discover H2O, we make it possible for swimmers of all ages, from infant to adult, to make rapid progress in water safety skills in a positive, encouraging setting. All children in lessons learn to swim eventually; just as all children learn to walk, some get it a little sooner, some a little later, but all do. Enjoy the process and enjoy the child’s achievements along the way.
