Keeping kids busy in the summer can get expensive.

Luckily, my oldest kids are finally at the age where they can go in the pool on their own (7+ in Surrey).

Since our “new” pools have opened in the past few years (anything that wasn’t around when I was a kid is new) my kids love going all of the facilities, especially the Grandview Heights and Guildford aquatic centres.

At $3.50 they are a good value, as the kids will swim for literally hours and bonus: no need to worry about sunscreen.  I recently bought my kids the Summer Fun Pass.  For $45 they can access any facility drop in program anytime all summer from June 30 to September 3 whether it’s swimming, skating or any of the child/youth drop-in programs being run all summer.

Check it out and see if it works for your family!
