Benedictine University will conduct the 2007 Learn-To-Swim program in the indoor, climate-controlled swimming pool at the Dan and Ada Rice Center with the first of six sessions beginning on Saturday, April 14.

All lessons are 30 minutes. The Spring Session begins Saturday, April 14 and continues each Saturday through May 19. Class times vary according to age and skill level. The first of four, two-week Summer sessions begins Monday, June 11 and continues each weekday through Friday, June 22. Summer sessions also begin on June 25, July 9 and July 23.
