Gainesville Aquatic Fun
The Dept of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs, located in Gainesville has some cool summer activities available. Some of the ones I found interesting are:
Dive In Movies- watch your favorite movie while floating in the pool. 3 dollars for children, and 5 dollars for adults. Pretty cool, if you ask me.
Swim lessons- Pretty much offered all year except winter, by Red Cross Water Safety Instructors. Classes are 30 min in length. All children should learn to swim, at a young age, and adults if you do not already know how.
Camp Aqua Sport- We might actually give this one a try next year. Provides a source of physical, and educational activities, in and around, and aquatic environment. It is 142 dollars for city residents, and 215 for non residents.
Junior Lifeguarding Camp for 12-15 yr old children- My son actually wanted to do this, but he is only 9, so he has to wait a bit. There are prerequisites that must be met, along with age. Participants learn life saving skills, first aid, and CPR, as well as life guarding skills. Price is 116 for city residents, and 173 for non city residents.
