Participate in the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson at Elitch Gardens on Thursday!

There is no better way to kick off summer than trying to become a part of history!

Elitch Gardens and PARC Foundation are joining the nation’s leading water safety organizations to present The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson (WLSL) on Thursday, June 3, 2010, to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching children to swim and preventing drowning.

Together with water parks, pools, and other aquatic facilities around the globe, Elitch Gardens and seven other PARC Management parks simultaneously host one World’s Largest Swimming Lesson at 8 am MDT in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record. Attending World’s Largest Swimming Lesson at Elitch Gardens will be Olympic Gold Medalist David Walters, who won Gold as part of the 800-meter freestyle relay team at the 2008 Summer Games.

Elitch Gardens’ lesson will take place in the Commotion Ocean wave pool in the Island Kingdom Water Park. Anyone who participates in the swimming lesson at 8 am before the park opens will qualify for discounted admission to stay and play at Elitch’s all day for just $24.99 each. All individuals interested in participating in the lesson are encouraged to register at Elitch’s Facebook page or email [email protected].
