The RiverMonsters Swim Club cordially invites young swimmers to the Valentine Monster Swim Camp on Sunday, Feb. 14 at the Dan Sharrers Aquatic Centre at the Hope & District Rec Centre from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

For the affordable price of $5, your little river monster will have the opportunity to swim in the company of certified coaches who will be on deck at all times to help.

RiverMonsters is a non profit society catering to swimmers from Hope, Sunshine Valley, Yale, Boston Bar and the Fraser Canyon Area.

RiverMonsters received approval this year from the BC Summer Swim Association on Jan. 30 to form a legitimate swim club. Volunteers will be on hand in the lobby to field questions, while providing information on winter session.

“It’s a unique opportunity for the kids to come out and see what being part of a competitive swim club could be like,” said event organizer and mom Catherine Freimark.
