The Municipality of Marmora and Lake is proud to offer a swim program in the core of their community. This program takes place at the Marmora Beach located on Crowe River. Sponsored by the Red Cross and Lifesaving Society, students learn the fundamentals of swimming as well as leadership, perseverance and valuable first aid skills.

A total of 144 swimmers completed the Marmora swim program during the summer of 2018.

"My 2-year-old son completed his two-week program and it was great to see how comfortable he had become in the water. It also showed me games I could play with him to continue his improvement on our own."

This summer 8 students successfully completed their Bronze Exam and will go on to become lifeguards.

The Marmora Beach Staff hosted their annual potluck BBQ on August 24. Students and their families returned to the beach to enjoy a beautiful sunny day while playing games and eating a delicious lunch together. This event was held to celebrate the success of swimmers enrolled in the program. A special thank you to Craig Potter, owner of Valu-mart, for generously donating 200 hot dogs and buns to the Beach Party.

The Marmora Beach swim program would not be possible without the help of all of its participants, parents and community sponsors. Thank you to the Marmora Crowe Valley Lions Club for donating new beach and safety equipment that will be used for many summers to come.

Registration for summer 2019 will take place June 24-28 2019 at the Marmora Beach, 2 Cameron St. Marmora ON.
