The SelkieMermaid program spans 3 lessons, one Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. The cost is $108 ( 10% savings over the regular per hour cost) for the week and includes the rental of the fin and tail.  Participants are welcome to swim with their own tail in any of the pools at Smugglers' Notch once they have had at least one lesson.

Register for the 3 lesson package by contacting Smugglers' Notch at (800) 419-4615 or (802) 332-6854, extension 5.

Classes are offered to children ages 7-13 and adults ages 14 and up. Girls, boys, women and men, all are welcome to participate! Classes may be combined for all age groups or separated if enough participants are registered in either age group.

The first class begins with an assessment of each participant's swimming abilities. The instructor will adapt the lesson plans so that each person gets the most out of the hour, with lots of fun and exercise.

Classes are based on the Red Cross model, with warm-up exercises, safety talk, review of previously taught skills, new skills, mermaid games, and cool-down. Some mermaid lore will be thrown in as well!
