Swim Lessons

As part of our commitment to promoting safety in the community, we offer Learn to Swim classes at the Danbury Community Center pool to keep your family safe when enjoying summer fun. Our courses are taught by American Red Cross certified instructors who are trained to make you feel comfortable, no matter your background and experience, while keeping you safe and teaching you to swim. Before you beat the heat at the Danbury Community Center pool or spend the day cruising on Candlewood Lake, make sure you are a confident swimmer with lessons from the DCC!
