Water and Sun Safety Classes

The Jefferson City Parks & Recreation Department encourages everyone to be safe in and around the water and to take necessary precautions to protect themselves from the harmful effects of the sun during the summer months. The aquatic staff is available to talk to area youth by visiting them at school or by setting up a field trip to Memorial Park Family Aquatic Center or Ellis-Porter Riverside Pool. Call (573) 634-6474 to schedule your water and sun safety class. This is a FREE program.

Drowning is the leading cause of injury death for young children ages 1 to 4.  Participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by as much as 88% among young children aged 1 to 4 years.
