Dive into history and celebration at our Juneteenth Swim Celebration! Join us as we commemorate the emancipation of enslaved African Americans and honor their resilience, strength and freedom. Immerse yourself in informative displays and presentations, learn valuable swimming skills in our lessons led by certified instructors, and groove to uplifting music with aqua dance sessions. Enjoy live musical performances, pamper yourself with poolside haircare services, and connect with the community through informational booths and conversations.

Reflect on the significance of Juneteenth while savoring refreshing beverages and snacks. Don't miss this day of education, empowerment and enjoyment for the whole community. Come together to honor the past, embrace the present, and envision a future of equality and inclusion for all.

Arrive on deck ready to swim and have fun. You are responsible for your own swimsuit, cap and goggles. You may rent a swimsuit and purchase swim accessories at the equipment issue desk. Kickboards, buoys and other training equipment will be provided for your use during lessons. Participants will be notified via email regarding any event notifications. Questions?
