The Preschool Day Camp locations will be at Osborne Elementary playground, 1414 Beaver Road, Sewickley.
At the Y we care about our campers’ safety at the pools. Adhering to all policies and procedures concerning pool safety is vital to ensure that our campers enjoy their time in the pool safely.
All Camp participants must have a swim test before they enter the pool. We will divide our campers into three categories to run efficient swimming lessons. Children swimming in the large pool will wear colored “Safety Necklaces” that will designate the level/ability the camper has in the swimming pool. Camp staff and Lifeguards will always be with the campers during the swim time. Children will be separated into three categories based on skill level:
Children who have little or no swimming background. Possibly have a fear of the water. Lessons would be held in the shallow (3 ft.) end of the pool. A “Swim Trainer” water back float will be provided for all non-swimmers for children 6 years old and under.
Children who can doggie paddle or float and have no fear of the water. Lessons will be held in the middle (4 ft. to 5 ft.) of the pool.
Children who have taken swimming lessons before and demonstrate the ability to use freestyle or front crawl for ½ the length of the pool without stopping. Lessons will be held in the deep (5 ft. to 12 ft.) end of the pool.
