Registration opens for Burlington summer swimming and youth recreation programs
April 22, 2022
Pool programming is opening up.
The City of Burlington’s summer swimming lessons and youth recreational programs will be available for online registration April 23. Non-Burlington residents can register April 29.
All classes and programs are available for viewing now at www.burlington.ca/recreation.
Chris Glenn, director of recreation, community and culture, said there are a lot of benefits to swimming programs.
“Swimming and summer programs are an important part of many kids’ lives. They will provide activity, learning, fun and an opportunity to make friends and memories. Our staff are trained, ready and excited to run these programs,” said Glenn.
Burlington’s learn to swim program provides a full range of classes for swimmers of every skill level and age. June lessons at Tansley Woods and Nelson Pool begin June 4 and the full summer session begins July 4.
Dates for adult summer program registration will be announced later in May.
There are a variety of programs available.
New Inclusion Program for Individuals with Disabilities ages 15-21
There’s a new recreation and social program geared to teens living with a disability. This course will use both indoor and outdoor program spaces. There will be themed weeks, outdoor adventures, crafts, physical activities and more. Make connections with peers in the community in a fun and active manner. The Rec Connections program will run the weeks of July 18, 25, Aug. 2, and 8.

Join City staff in neighbourhood parks for some simple fun and games. Staff are on-site to encourage participants to be active, social, and creative.
