Okeechobee Swim Lessons

April 30, 2015

The weather is heating up and for many Floridians this means it's time to cool off in the pool.  While a day of playing in the pool can be fun, injuries and illnesses due to water-related activities increase during this time of year.

Waterproof Florida encourages layers of protection that include supervision, barriers and emergency preparedness. You can learn about the layers on the WaterproofFL website.

In our community, swim lessons are being offered by the following groups:

  • Okeechobee Parks and Recreation (863) 763-6950
  • Okeechobee YMCA Summer Camp at North Elementary School (863) 484-0202 www.ymcatreasurecoast.org.
