Help us make the record books!!! North Texas Jellystone Park™ & Pirates’ Cove Water Park, along with the nation’s top water safety and training organizations, are joining forces to present The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson,™  Thursday, June 22, 2017, to build awareness about the vital importance of teaching children to swim to help prevent drowning.

Swimming is a life-saving skill for children and a vital tool to prevent drowning, the second leading cause of unintended, injury-related death for children ages 1-14. The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson™ was created to serve as a platform to help local community aquatic facilities and the many different national, regional and state wide water safety and drowning prevention organizations work together to tell this important story on a local and national level.
