Swimming Lessons 2017

Fairfield Parks and Recreation offers a variety of levels of Swimming Lessons at both Jennings Beach and Lake Mohegan.  The lessons are taught by certified Lifeguards and overseen by our Waterfront Director, Cathy Doenges.

American Red Cross Water Safety classes must remain small for safety reasons. To avoid disappointments, we recommend that you register early and include additional choices. Please note that the Red Cross has revised these courses, so carefully review the pre-requisites and course content when selecting the appropriate course for your child. Age requirements are strict.
