Three Rivers Swim Program
WHAT IT IS
The Three Rivers Swim Program is an excellent, low cost, eight-week educational swim program for Scouters and their siblings. It has been specially designed to teach your children to be more proficient swimmers and develop confidence in and around the water. Classes include all Cub Scout - Boy Scout aquatic awards, American Red Cross Certifications in youth swimming classes and Lifeguarding.
WHO WE ARE
We are staffed, run, planned & organized by a group of highly skilled American Red Cross certified Instructors from Venturing Crew 513. Because ALL of our instructors are Scouting volunteers, we’re able to provide swim lessons at a fraction of the cost of other community based programs.
We have come a long way from our humble beginnings at the pool at the Anoka State Mental hospital in 1963 when we were originally called “Take Your Son Out to Swim Day”. Back then there were only 2 community pools available to the community during the winter months. We have grown and expanded since those simple beginnings, thanks to the continued support from all of you.
