In fact, 23-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps even credits his success to being exposed to the pool early on in life.

Anthem Swim Camp is the perfect introduction for children to the pool. They learn dry-land skills, practice swim drills, review nutrition and play games during this four-day camp. Certified instructors will lead the classes and children receive group and one-on-one guidance.

"Getting children comfortable in the water is extremely important," said Desi Valdivia, Aquatics and Program Manager at the Community Center, "the earlier the better."

Register for any day or the entire four-week camp, the choice is yours! Each class is $25 ($90 for all four classes) and camp runs from March 20-23. Registration closes five days before each scheduled camp day. Bring a towel, dry set of clothes and a lunch each day.
