SENSORY FRIENDLY SWIM TIME
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 15 • 9 – 11 AM
FREE FOR MEMBERS / $8 NON-MEMBER / $25 NON-MEMBER FAMILY PACKAGE (UP TO FOUR PEOPLE)
We are excited to offer a special swimming session, in which we modify the environment to create a calmer atmosphere in the pool, creating a more sensory-friendly environment designed for kids, teens, and adults with sensory processing differences, autism spectrum disorder, or developmental disabilities. The pool will be open to everyone during the event, just with some minor adjustments to make it a safe and calm place for everyone to enjoy. The music will be turned off, whistles will not be used within the vicinity of the pool, and staff will be trained and committed to understanding and supporting individuals with neurodiversity. The splash pad and waterslide will remain turned off between 9–10 AM and turned on between 10–11 AM.
