Swimming lessons save lives. That’s the message hundreds of Weston children learn while taking part in the World’s Largest Swim Lesson™. This summer, over one hundred campers from Camp Sagemont will take part in the program at The Swim Academy, which happens to be housed at The Sagemont School.
“Our campers will completed a drill of water safety skills along with other swimmers from all over the world,” says Danielle Guski, Camp Director.
It is estimated that more than 20,000 swimmers at 500 locations around the world will take part in this simultaneous swim lesson as they try to break another world record.
Once again, The Swim Academy will be honored to be a part of the World’s Largest Swim Lesson. “This event gives us the perfect platform to further spread our message of water safety,” states Marcella Miciano, The Swim Academy Director.
The World’s Largest Swim Lesson program works to promote drowning prevention through education by focusing the energy of tens of thousands of participants on a clear and specific message all at the same time. Tragically, drowning remains the second leading cause of unintended injury-related death of children under 14 and is a leading cause of death for children ages one through five. Research shows participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88%.
