Learn to Swim Day is a holiday dedicated to teaching children to swim. Drowning is one of the leading causes of death amongst children under the age of 14, so swimming is such an important skill for them to have. Not only is swimming an important skill to have, it’s also fun! The start of summer is the perfect time to learn out to swim. The weathers starting to get warm and now your kids will have the rest of the season to enjoy their new skill!
