Three Rivers 2020 Swim Program
Three Rivers District
Family Swim Program
Welcome again everyone to the 57th year of the Three Rivers Family Swim Program. We have come a long way from our humble beginnings at the pool at the Anoka State Mental Hospital in 1963 when we were originally called “Take Your Son Out to Swim Day”. Back then there were only two pools available to the community during the winter months. We have grown and expanded since those simple beginnings, thanks to the continued support from all of you.
For those of you new to this Swim Program, we offer an excellent, low cost, eight-week educational experience for Scouters, the community, and the whole family. It has been specially designed to teach your whole family to be more proficient swimmers and develop confidence in and around the water. Classes include all Cub Scout – Scouts BSA aquatic awards, American Red Cross certifications in youth swimming classes, and life-guarding.
We are staffed, planned, organized and run by a group of highly skilled American Red Cross certified instructors from Venturing Crew 513. Because ALL of our instructors are Scouting volunteers, we’re able to provide swim lessons at a fraction of the cost of other community-based programs.
There’s more information in this packet and our website, www.threeriversbsaswim.org. Give us a chance and I’m sure you’ll find out why we are one of the most successful programs of its kind in the nation!

We hope to see all of you in January at Centennial High School!
