As we shake off the cabin fever and Netflix overload that accumulated during winter, many parents start looking for activities that suit the longer and warmer days. Amid an array of options, one activity stands out for being fun, enjoyable and an essential lifesaving skill: swimming. 

Pedalheads offers bike, swim and trail riding programs to families across Canada, with summer camps running from June-August in BC. Our curriculum-based swim programs focus on safety, skill development and maximized learning through increased practice time. More swimming = more progress. 

Learn to Swim by booking your swimming camp spots early this summer so that your kids can enjoy the beach/pool all summer long!

Here are 4 reasons to start swimming lessons before summer vacation. 

1. Boost water safety and confidence for kids 

Tragically, drowning is the leading cause of death in kids aged 1 to 4 in the US, so learning to swim is a life-saving skill. Formal swimming lessons have been found to reduce the risk of drowning among children by 88%, which is why it’s such an important investment in children’s safety beyond the joy it brings. 

For those who can swim with confidence, the doors open to other water activities and sports as well – from boating to surfing to triathlons. Swim lessons greatly reduce the risk and nerves around water that are felt by adults and children who can’t swim.

2.  Get your kid off screens with fun spring activities

Need a simple way to get your kid off screens without playing tablet tug-of-war? Luckily, you can’t mix water and screentime. Group swimming lessons give your kid the chance to socialize, make new friends and embrace the art of play.  

At Pedalheads, kids’ enjoyment is at the heart of what we do. Our instructors incorporate games and level-specific toys into our programs to keep them engaged for the entire lesson.  

3. Improve kids’ health through low impact exercise 

Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise and is great for children’s health for a variety of reasons. It engages all the muscle groups from head to toe, it’s low-impact and it improves lung capacity, boosts heart health and increases strength.  

4. Prepare your kid for a summer vacation

If your family summer bucket list includes a beach, lake or other water-side vacation, your spring bucket list should include swimming lessons. Equipping them with strong swimming skills will give them the freedom to enjoy the water independently or by your side. Whether that be at a water park, in a hotel pool or even on a 15ft inflatable flamingo (you know the ones).
