Plans for Swimming Lessons Move Forward

June 15, 2021

Canton’s Recreation Department continues to wait for guidance from the State on whether swimming lessons will be permitted this summer, given ongoing COVID restrictions and precautions.  That guidance is expected any day, so the Department and Committee are optimistically moving forward with plans.

The plan is for swim lessons to be held at the pool at Canton Central School, running Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday mornings between 8 and 11 a.m, from July 1st through August 6th.  The cost for residents of Canton for the five-week session will be $40 for the first child and $25 for each additional child registered;  cost for non-residents of Canton will be $50.  Payment will be due on the first day of lessons; cash or check are acceptable forms of payment.

Children between the ages of 4 and 12 may be registered here. Paper copies of the registration form are also available in the Town and Village Clerks’ offices.

Contact Elizabeth Burke at or (315)854-3142 for more questions regarding lessons.  Please refer to for further updates.
