January 2023 Activities Calendar

Children that are not potty trained or still in diapers are to have a “Swim Diaper” on at all times when swimming. Swim Diapers are available for purchase at the Snack Bar.

All personal flotation devices must be U.S. Coast Guard Approved. No plastic, inflatable “floaties” are allowed. If you are in need of a lifejacket, we have lifejackets free of charge to use during your swim. Please ask a lifeguard to help find the correct fit for your child. Currently we have children sizes: X-Small, Small, and Medium. Lifejackets are given on a first come, first serve basis. Children wearing a lifejacket or their own personal flotation device MUST be accompanied at all times by a parent/legal guardian in and out of the water.
