  • Safe Swimmers Start Here

    ymca-swimTeaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. Enrolling in YMCA Swimming Lessons can help you make sure they learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.

    A typical lesson includes:

    • Exercises to help kids adjust to being in water
    • Specific safety topics, like what to do if you see someone in the water who needs help
    • Fun activities that reinforce skills

    Help Keep Your Children Safe
    Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or caregiver, you can’t keep your children sidelined. You need to equip them with the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.

    Field Trip #1: Bowlero
    Tuesday, June 27

    At Bowlero, the fun doesn’t stop at the bowling lanes. It continues in the arcade room and rolls into the laser tag area. Now that’s a strike!

    Field Trip #2: Joliet Slammers Game
    Wednesday, June 28

    The Joliet Slammers will be facing off against the Schaumburg Boomers at Silver Cross Field in historic downtown Joliet.

    Field Trip #3: Sky Zone
    Thursday, June 29

    Heralded as the “world’s first indoor trampoline park,” Sky Zone is where dreams come true for kids. The floor is literally made of trampolines.

    Field Trip #4: Pelican Harbor Aquatic Park
    Friday, June 30

    There’s no better way to beat the heat than to cool off at a local water park. That’s why we’re ending the week with a trip to Pelican Harbor in Bolingbrook.
