Private swim lessons

Currently we are offering private swim lessons based on the American Red Cross Learn to Swim program; all ages are welcome and swim lessons are open to the public. Private lessons, conducted one-on-one, allow instructors to customize lessons to a participant’s skill level. A private lesson is a great option for adults or children who have had a traumatic experience with water, or for students who may become distracted with other participants. Semi-private lessons are also available and allow for up to three students. This is a great option for families with multiple children who want to take the classes together. Private lessons are by request only. Please contact Aquatics Manager Stacey Aucoin at  540-445-5383 or saucoin@culpeperwellness.org for more information on private swim lessons or fill out and return the private swim lesson request form
