July 15, 2012 - PRLog -- Swimming lessons save lives. That’s the message hundreds of Weston children learned while taking part in the World’s Largest Swim Lesson™. One-hundred and twenty campers from Camp Sagemont took part in the program at The Swim Academy, which happens to be housed at The Sagemont School.

“Camp Sagemont made a big splash!” states Edwin Cruz, director of Camp Sagemont. “Our campers completed a drill of water safety skills along with other swimmers from all over the world.”

It is estimated that more than 20,000 swimmers at 500 locations around the world took part in this simultaneous swim lesson. With 46 states and 24 countries on five continents participating, the 2012 event is poised to break another record. The inaugural World’s Largest Swim Lesson in 2010 set a Guinness World Record, and last year’s event broke that record.

In addition to making history, Camp Sagemont campers also learned valuable lessons. “I learned some new strokes and I learned some things about water safety,” states Ar’e Stoudemire.

Bradley Gibbs thought it was fun to help break a world record. Skylor Liu agreed, adding: “I liked the day because we did lots of swim challenges and we swam a lot.”

Once again, The Swim Academy was honored to be a part of the World’s Largest Swim Lesson. “This event gives us the perfect platform to further spread our message of water safety,” states Marcella Miciano, The Swim Academy Director.

The World’s Largest Swim Lesson program works to promote drowning prevention through education by focusing the energy of tens of thousands of participants on a clear and specific message all at the same time. Tragically, drowning remains the second leading cause of unintended injury-related death of children under 14 and is a leading cause of death for children ages one through five. Research shows participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88%.



The Swim Academy has been successfully teaching children water safety skills for over 15 years. The Swim Academy’s nationally-recognized learn-to-swim program is designed to enable children at a very young age to master basic swimming and survival skills.
