‘Splash in water to beat the summer heat’ sounds like a perfect summer camp idea. Just grab the swim gear and hit the pool. But before that ,is your child ready for swimming yet.
The child must feel comfortable in the pool before beginning formal lessons. School age kids must know how to swim for safety as well as fitness. Children have inherent fears of water but once they start enjoying, swimming can be a great exercise.
Children must be exposed to water at splash pads and zero depth pools as early as they can sit. Under parental supervision they can become familiar with buoyancy, thrust and breathing basics in water. Within a few weeks they will start enjoying it. But if a child fears from water, they must not be forced to learn swimming. ‘Right age for swimming lessons’ is to help you chose an ideal ‘summer camp for swimming lessons’ from the listings below.
Children must be regularly taken to pool or splash pads as early as 6 months old. This will help them overcome their fear from water. Water provides rich sensory play for children. Thus children will start observing and exploring fun with water. And some science concepts too.
