We support water safety throughout our programme by:
In Term 4 2020 we will be launching our new snorkel safety programme. Designed to teach vital safety skills for the open water, our first lessons are being delivered free of charge to local schools courtesy of our funding partner.
In 2021 the YMCA will be launching surf safety camps, a 3 day-2 night school camp teaching specialist beach, boating and watersport practical skills in a real life environment. Delivering curriculum outcomes and working with qualified, specialist partners, this camp will support Kiwi kids to stay safe and love the water for life.
