Sink or Swim

Through a partnership with YUSA, the YMCA’s Sturgeon Bay Program Center has received an outreach grant to offer free swim lessons to 100 children ages 5 – 12 during their 2015 summer swim program. Registration is required and can be made by stopping in or calling 920.743.4949. The program registration opened for members on June 15 and community members on June 17 and will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Door County YMCA CEO Tom Beerntsen stated that, “In a county surrounded by water, it is vital that we do everything possible to provide for the safety of our kids and the Y is pleased to be able to join with Y’s throughout the country and ‘hop the gap’ to fill this significant need in our community during the summer months.”
