Be Healthy

Be Active



The purpose of the JC Learn to Swim Program is to develop competency in swimming, along with confidence and endurance. Our ultimate goal with this program is to give children the basic skills to help them enjoy the water and be safe in and around the water in hopes of never having a drowning tragedy.



With that said, some of the areas that are being covered are: pool rules, floating front and back, treading water and how to swim ourselves to safety.



Thanks to the generous support of many donors, local businesses, and community members, we are able to conduct a VERY successful ‘Learn to Swim’ program. 



*Jami Cummings of Brewster, MN was recently nominated and awarded the Minnesota Sheriff’s Association Life Saving Award after she saved a woman and young child from drowning in Lake Okabena in August of 2011. Jami’s heroism is being recognized through this fantastic program and we are extremely proud to offer this to all 2nd graders in Nobles County.*
