CT Water Safety Camp Returns for 1st Time Since Start of Pandemic, Welcomes 120 Kids

In 2007, Zachary Cohn was 6 years old when he drowned in his backyard pool. Zachary knew how to swim, but his arm was sucked under by the drain entrapment.

In honor of Zachary, the Cohn family founded the ZAC Foundation in 2008 to teach parents and their children about basic water safety skills and drowning prevention.

According to the organization, they have provided water safety programming to more than 20,000 children ages 5-9 in at-risk communities nationwide.
