Swim lessons not only keep kids safe in the water, they can also be the first step in learning to lifeguard, being part of a swim team and exercising through lap swimming. Our experienced Y instructors emphasize personal safety, swimming skills, endurance and social skills, while guiding students with praise and encouragement. The Lancaster Family YMCA offers swim lessons throughout the year in 8-week sessions/1 class per week. Evening and Saturday morning classes are available at all branches. The YMCA at New Holland also offers Monday and Wednesday morning classes
