    There are so many wonderful activities for children in our area during the summer months. We are starting to see more and more camps, recreational activities, fun classes - with a good range of experiences being offered for kids.

    Please add any good programs or camps you know about to help us inform SoWal families. Thank you! :D

    Yes! I'm waiting on details from Panama City Swim Team's summer program called Summer Splashes at Frank Brown Park (Panama City Beach) - swimming lessons for all age kids, and swim team for more advanced kid swimmers. It is an outstanding program. We have had the opportunity to participate for several years and we love it! We had an article on the home page last summer:

    Panama City Swim Team Fun Meet - Photos | SoWal.com - Guide For The Beaches Of South Walton & Scenic 30A

    Frank Brown Park is located on Hwy 98 on the left just before Pier Park. To have swimming lessons, swim teams, and fun meets conducted by Panama City Swim Team (PCST) coaches and swimmers - is really fantastic for teaching swimming in the best possible way (learning and practicing skills over time, not a sink or swim crash course). The Aquatic Center at Frank Brown Park is very nice with Olympic pool. The PCST is based out of Gulf Coast Community College and have practices (older kids/swim team) and meets there as well.

    Panama City Swim Team website

    There are other swim instructors in the SoWal area such as The Mermaid Sea - Sherrie and Christine - they are excellent instructors who conduct one on one sessions with young children.
