MILWAUKEE — For the second consecutive year, the Milwaukee Y is partnering with the Milwaukee County Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture to offer its day camps and swim lessons at several County Parks sites this summer.

Day Camp Partnership

More than 1,100 kids are expected to attend Milwaukee Y day camps this summer, where they will experience the Camp FLY (Fun Learning for Youth) curriculum model created by licensed educators to help reduce summer learning loss. The four camps held at County Parks sites will provide more children with opportunities to explore nature, try new activities, and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Milwaukee Swims Partnership

Through its Milwaukee Swims initiative, which begins June 20, 2016, the Milwaukee Y will offer a reduced-cost package of nine swim lessons for $5 per individual and $10 per family at four County Parks sites.

These introductory classes are geared toward non-swimmers to learn basic swim skills and water safety, including how to recognize dangerous situations when in and around water environments. Lessons are available for children ages six and above, as well as non-swimming adults. Swim lessons will be taught in age-appropriate groups to ensure optimal skill and safety outcomes.
