Waterworks Aquatics is Hosting Splashing into Summer Safety Day 2011

June 27, 2011

 Waterworks Aquatics is excited to partner with the Orange County Fire Authority in presenting Splashing into Summer Safety Day 2011.

This Thursday, June 30th from 10:00am – 12:00pm the Orange County Fire Authority along with other community health and safety organizations will be on site at Waterworks helping to promote water safety in Southern Orange County.

This eventful day will include a live demonstration in our outdoor pool involving both parent and paramedics performing save and rescue drills. Free Swim with toys and rafts will be available in our outdoor pool. Not only are we planning to provide a variety of activities and games for all ages to enjoy, but “Sparky the Dog” and “Stewie the Duck” will also be in attendance. The Orange County Fire Authority will be giving tours of an actual Fire Engine and children will have the chance to learn what it takes to become a firefighter. Irvine Police will have the DARE Truck available. Participants will be given the opportunity to earn wristbands, stickers, helmets, re-usable beach bags, crayons, water watcher tags, and beach balls. Parents will learn the steps necessary to secure their homes and prepare their children for a lifetime of aquatic safety.

At Waterworks we take year round water safety very seriously; playing in and around the water can be very enjoyable but it is important to know how to do so in a safe and effective manner. We would like to encourage all of our families to come out and participate in this event to learn more about how they can keep their friends and relatives safe for the summer season.


Summer Swim Camps-Great way to prepare your child for a summer of activities

June 1, 2011

The sun is shining and we can feel the excitement of the children anticipating the ending of another school year and looking forward to all the fun activities summer will hold! Summer camps are a great way for children to socialize with their peers while learning new and fun skills. It is also a great way to keep them busy while mom and dad work or run errands.

Waterworks‘ week long half day summer swim camps are always a hit! Children have fun in the sun while working on stroke technique, speed, breathing, dives, flip turns, strength and conditioning in the water. It’s not all hard work and no play, children have fun racing against each other and at the end of every day the kids get to free play with our giant pool rafts! Parents have commented how much improvement they see in their children’s swimming skills at the end of swim camp. We provide a snack and juice each day, and at the end of the week each participant receives a snow cone to reward them for all their hard work!

 If you are looking for an activity for your child to do and would like them to get shape for all those summer pool parties and trips to the beach, or if your child just loves the water this camp will be a great benefit. Camps start the week of June 20th and go through August 29th. Children need to be able to swim two lengths of a pool to participate.
