Families have always played a vital role in teaching kids how important it is to learn to swim and behave safely in and around the water. That's even more true today when most schools, swim clubs and recreation centers are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Red Cross wants to help parents, caregivers and kids to learn and share water safety knowledge and skills together. If your child isn’t able to take formal swim lessons right now, you can still help them learn to be safer around backyard pools, ponds or other natural bodies of water. We hope your family enjoys a safe, healthy and fun summer!
