Camp Happy Hall Swim Lesson FAQs

 

Is there a fee for swim lessons?

Yes, you must sign up directly with British Swim Schools. British Swim School is waiving its membership fee for Camp Happy Hall families. Use the promotion code BSSHH24 at checkout!

 

Who will take my child to their lesson?

If your child is enrolled at Camp Happy Hall, a Camp Teacher will walk all children signed up for lessons, stay with your child throughout their lessons, and walk them back to camp.

When should I schedule swim lessons?

We ask that families select lessons that begin at 9:30, 10:15, or 11:00 AM. Depending on the group size, campers will return to camp as soon as possible.

If families choose a different time, Happy Hall will not be able to walk campers to their lesson. 

 

What happens if the 9:30, 10:15, or 1:30 PM classes are full?

British Swim School asks that Camp Happy Hall families join the waitlist, and another class may be added as summer approaches.

 

My child is an Adventurer (entering grades TK or K). Can they participate in swim lessons?

Yes, although they will not participate in recreational swimming, they are welcome to sign up for swim lessons.
