2019 January Swim and Survive Program

Water Skills For Life are conducting Swim & Survive Summer Camps during the school holidays in January 2019. These camps are designed for children from the age of 5yrs -14yrs.

Each camp runs for a week. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday will be conducted at Collaroy rockpool and beach, with Wednesday and Friday held at Warringah Aquatic Centre.

Dates for the camps are:

  • 7-11 January,
  • 14-18 January, and
  • 21-25 January.

The camps will begin at 2.30pm and conclude around 4pm each day. Children will learn important water safety skills to be able to help themselves and others, when in trouble, in and around the water, survival swimming strokes and rescue skills together with an understanding of CPR. We will have swimming tuition as part of the lesson program where children will be able to improve their swimming skills.

Spaces are limited to 30 participants for each program. Each child who attends the camp will receive a swim pack containing swim cap and goggles and a water safety activity book. At the completion of the camp, children receive a certificate for the level that they have achieved.

Children are to arrive 15mins before we commence, ready for the afternoon's lesson. We encourage you to ensure that your child has sun protection and also if possible a wetsuit or wetsuit top to keep them warm during the days we will be at the rock pool and beach.
