Holiday Giving Tree

The Friends of Fidalgo Pool and Fitness Center annual Holiday Giving Tree allows you to give the gift of swimming to a child in financial need.  We believe all children should have the chance to learn to swim and to gain the important skills needed to be safe in and around water.

Friends Swim Scholarship Fund provides financial support for children to learn to swim.  The fund grows through fundraising, supporter donations, and grants.  Swim scholarships are awarded quarterly, for each lesson session.  All money raised for the fund goes directly to support swim lessons at FPFC.

Lessons cost from $96 to $120 per swim lesson session, depending on the age of the child. Annually we provide approximately 65 scholarships
