Learn To Swim


2020 Learn to Swim Program

Swim lesson registration is  conducted online through the Borough website. Participants must be enrolled in Active Network to register for swim lessons. Visit camphillborough.com and create a family account. (If your family participated in recreation programs in the past, you already have an Active Network account established. Do not create a new account).

When registration opens for 2020 (see windows below), return to the website, access your account and register with your credit or debit card. If you choose to pay by check or cash, registration must be done in person at the Borough Office. However, it is the responsibility of the participant’s caretaker to insure a family account has been established in advance.

Participant must be a pool member and at least three (3) years old. Class size is limited to ten (10) individuals. Early registration is strongly recommended. Lessons are conducted rain or shine. No make-up dates for lessons cancelled due to hazardous weather (lightning & thunder).
