Stand Up to Drowning

Our Stand Up to Drowning campaign will be activated this year once again.  It's a pledge that swimmers take to educate themselves on the rules and conduct of safe swimming.  Our swim instructions highlight all aspects of safe swimming.  When visiting our Waterpark, please notice the Stand Up to Drowning display and take the pledge with us!
