Kid’s fun swims beat summer heat

Water-borne activities available during holidays

Young swimmers can cool off from the heat of summer in the Oak Bay Recreation Centre pool during Friday Fun Swims, held from 2 to 5 p.m.

Under the watchful eyes of lifeguards, kids can play water games and have the chance to win prizes.

Children’s swim passes are on sale now for $38. They allow unlimited access to fun swims all summer.

Upcoming themes include Pirate Plunder today (July 8), Super Size Swim (July 15), Drowning Prevention (July 22) and Christmas in July (July 29).

In addition to the Friday Fun swims, a Dive-in-Movie will be featured on July 13 at 10 p.m. As well, a Name the Octopus colouring contest for kids is being held throughout the month of July.
