For the second year, the City of #Memphis, #Tennessee is offering FREE summer camps to children.
This year, the Parks Department is doing something a little different – offering an all-day swim camp.
There’s no better way to beat Memphis’ summer heat, but it is important for people to put safety first, especially when it comes to young children around pools.
So for the first time, the City of Memphis is offering a summer camp to kids between the ages of 5 and 13 devoted to swimming.
“It’s to start with basis of swimming basics and safety and expand it out to all the things that are included in aquatics. What you see is the level of kids ability to swim at centers for FREE swim varies widely, and that there is a large number of them that need training and more education on swimming.”
– Nick Walker, Deputy Director of Parks and Neighborhoods
Sign-up for all city camps starts Tuesday, April 10, 2019 at all community centers. You will be able to dive into the pool at Bickford Community Center, Memphis, Tennessee starting June 9, 2019.
