YMCA Swim School at Cameron Pools

Term 1 starts 28th Jan! Enrol today!

Learn to swim with our qualified instructors

If you’ve been putting off getting your children swimming – or learning to swim yourself – now is the time to take that step! Regardless of age or ability, there’s a learn to swim programme to suit every family and individual at Cameron Pool & Leisure Centre managed by YMCA.

We offer everything from baby classes through to classes for adults – and while each level has group lessons, there’s always the additional option of private tuition.

Swim School terms are generally 10 weeks long, and we offer free assessments to ensure that all swimmers are placed in a class that will suit their capabilities and age. With a dedicated teaching pool kept at a comfy temperature, it’s a supportive, safe environment to learn the essential skills of swimming and water safety.
