With National Water Safety Month in May and summer around the corner, it’s a great time for parents to remember the importance of ensuring their children are equipped with essential water safety skills.

School is nearly out, and while kids typically burst into summer with a zealous energy, most parents can tell you it doesn’t take long for summer boredom to set in. But boredom is banished at the YMCA of the Blue Water Area where children can have their best summer ever thanks to a variety of programs and activities that stimulate both mind and body.
