Each summer our youth at Bethany have the wonderful opportunity to swim in our on-site outdoor pool. Complete with two tube slides, the pool is a great place for our youth to gather and really get to experience the fun side of summer.
Swimming lessons are offered and encouraged for youth who need them. Our recreation staff serves as lifeguards and teaches swim lessons on a weekly basis. Seasonal lifeguards are also hired and needed each summer to meet the demand of the pool.
”It is a very rewarding opportunity to watch a young person gain confidence and skills in the water in only a few short weeks.”
Several activities are held at the pool on a weekly basis. The campus enjoys meals at the pavilion and swimming into the evening hours. Picnics have been hosted by several church groups and give our community a chance to see what a typical summer day is like for our youth.
The pool is a fantastic and rare asset in a Residential Services setting. It gives our youth the desired opportunity for “kids to be kids.” The pool is also available for our employees to use during the summer months.
