Swim lessons at Great Waves Waterpark are a great way for your kids to brush up on their water skills. We offer class lessons for everyone from the youngest beginners to age 5. Registration for classes is normally available at the beginning of waterpark season, starting just before the waterpark opens on Memorial Day Weekend.
Please note, if a child has their own Annual Waterpark Pass, they are eligible for a 10% discount for one session. Discount cannot be applied online - call Cameron Run Regional Park at 703-960-0767.
SWIM LESSON CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
Please note that most children’s swimming skills will regress over the winter if they are not practicing indoors.
Students often repeat a level several times before mastering the skills to move to the next level. Repeating a level does not constitute failure.
