Swim Subsidy Program

The Township of Stone Mills recognizes the importance of persons to learn how to swim from the perspectives of recreation, healthy living and safety around the numerous lakes and rivers within the Township.  To ensure our youth have the opportuinty to learn how to swim, in 2011 the Township commenced the Swim Subsidy Program.  This program provides a partial re-imbursement of monies paid to enroll youth that reside in the Township of Stone Mills in a qualifying and recognized swim program.  The amount of the subsidy is $42.00 and this amount will be paid for each youth that is enrolled in a swim program once for each fiscal year (January 1 through December 31) when lessons are being obtained.  A Swim Subsidy Program Application Form must be completed and submitted to the Township of Stone Mills to participate in this program.  Please contact the Township Office if additional information is required in respect to this program.

Beaver Lake Swim Program

Through the efforts of a dedicated group of volunteers, the Beaver Lake Swim Program was commenced in the summer of 2013. This program addressed a need when it was identified that a keen interest existed in having swimming lessons at Beaver Lake following the loss of swim programs at the Napanee Pool and Varty Lake. Concerned parent’s and grandparent’s took the initiative to commence this program to reduce drowning’s and water related injuries so that our local residents and children will be safer in, on, and around water.

The program is run from the Neville’s Point Public Beach and employs all new equipment and 2-4 instructors dependent upon registration.  All instructors are Red Cross certified with all the certifications required to teach.  The program is run in one week increments due to other commitments everybody has during the summer months.  The program will offer morning and afternoon lessons finishing with the required number of hours by the end of the one week session. Lessons run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or from 1:00 p.m. to 4 :00 p.m.  Program volunteers will attempt to accommodate all persons enrolld in this program.  Persons who would like to volunteer to help with this program can sign up at the time of registration.

Past swimming achievements will be recognized however swimming certificates must be provided.  To participate, children must be at least 5 years of age as of the first day of the swimming lessons.

The Township Of Stone Mills is a proud supporter of the Beaver Lake Swim Program and provides an annual financial grant to assist this program.
