Swimming is joyful… we want to keep it safe too.

ZAC Camps are Back!

Our Water safety day camp program, in partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America returns this summer. We introduce club kids to the basics of water safety through time in the pool, memorable lessons in the classroom and general safety tips & interaction with first responders.

Our Partners

The Foundation has partnered with programs and organizations across the country – from Austin, to Chicago, to Joint Base Andrews – to help develop and provide educational programming and resources for swimmers of all ages and abilities.

Our collaboration with The ZAC Foundation has been very successful. Their support of the Red Cross Aquatics Centennial Campaign and our Swim app has helped people across the country learn how to swim and know the importance of water safety.
