Thank you so much to the Georgetown Rotary Club for making swim lessons possible for every one of our summer camp kids! Today they came and celebrated the swimming successes with our kids. We had 60% of our camp kids move up at least 1 level in swimming. We had 4 kids move up 2 levels in swimming ability! None of which would have been possible without the Georgetown Rotary club and our amazing swim instructors, so THANK YOU!
