Children can unplug and learn how to swim at Hubbard Family Swim School’s summer six-pack sessions.
The six 30-minute swim lessons feature the same instructor throughout the two-week session.
“Parents will love our summer six-pack sessions because packing six swim lessons into two weeks really jump-starts skill improvement, which is perfect for both beginner swimmers and skilled swimmers,” says Ann Marie Sunderhaus, chief executive officer of the Hubbard Family Swim Schools and Camp Hubbard. “Our summer blitz lessons are always a lot of fun.
“We are also extremely excited to be back for our 23rd consecutive year of summer camp. Kids, now more than ever, need all the social and physical benefits that Camp Hubbard has to offer.”
Designed for ages 4 1/2 to 14, the classes allow children to make new friends while learning new indoor and outdoor sports, games and activities such as basketball, volleyball, soccer, baseball, softball, archery, swimming and water games.
This summer, all campers will be required to wear a face mask to camp, and face masks must be worn during all low-intensity activities. Children will remain in small groups with no more than 10 campers per staff member.
Camp Hubbard operates through August 6 at three locations — St. Bernadette Parish in Scottsdale, Sunnyslope High School in Phoenix, and Griffith Elementary in Phoenix. Camp dates vary by location. There are half-day and full-day options available. Half-day is from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., and the full day is from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There is also “Pizza Friday,” with pizza served for lunch every Friday for all full-day campers.
There are four Hubbard Family Swim School locations around the Valley — in Phoenix, Peoria, Mesa and Goodyear. Hubbard offers swim lessons to children ages 2 to 12. There are free “Baby Splash” swim classes for babies 8 weeks to 5 months of age. Parent participation in the water is required. There is a one-time, $30 joining fee for the Baby Splash classes. Hubbard also specializes in offering swim lessons to children with special needs.
