MAZINAW LAKE SWIM PROGRAM (MLSP)
The Mazinaw Lake Swim Program was started in 1972 in response to the tragic drowning deaths of two children from the same family in our community. The mothers in the area at that time banded together and raised funds by running Strawberry Socials, Bake Sales, and whatever else they could to start a swim program, to make sure this never happened again. Children from the age of 4 can join the program which runs for the whole month of July each year. MLSP is held at Bon Echo Park and the fee is $100 per child including transportation. This year the program runs from July 3rd to July 28th. This program will never turn away a child due to his/her family circumstances, every child will be given the opportunity to learn how to swim. This program is open to all children and not just those from the community, summer visitors and campers can join also, all are welcome.
