Free swim lessons offered to underserved Cape families

By Staff | Jun 30, 2022

The Yacht Club pool will reopen Wednesday.

During July, free swim lessons are available to underserved children at the Yacht Club Community Pool, 5819 Driftwood Parkway.

These lessons are available to children ages 3-5 and will be held from 9:30-10 a.m. Monday through Thursday, beginning Monday, July 11, and ending Thursday, July 21.

Each child that participates will receive eight 30-minute swim lessons. In addition to lessons, the participant’s parents will receive complimentary CPR training.

To check eligibility for this grant program, which is made possible through the partnership between Cape Coral’s Parks and Recreation Department, the Kiwanis Club of Cape Coral, and Lee Health, parents must complete an application, including self-certification of income limits. Applications are available at www.CapeParks.com and may be returned to the pool or emailed to efield@capecoral.gov.
