Learn To Swim

Campus Recreation offers group swim lessons for children and adults alike. The adult lessons are geared for beginners, while the children's lessons are offered at a number of different ability levels based on American Red Cross swim level standards. Each year we offer an 8 week fall session that typically starts in September and a 8 week winter/spring session that typically starts in late January.

Swim lessons are held on Saturday mornings at Costello Pool (275 Riverside Street, Lowell, MA 01854). Registration fees are $120 per participant. Please look at the information below for upcoming swim session dates, times, and registration details.
