“Our son LOVES swim class! We signed him up at the Woodridge location for safety reasons and we were so surprised at how much he just loves swim class! Such a great place- we highly recommend it to many other parents looking for a swim school. Great establishment!”
Eran, Woodridge, IL


“Our daughter just started her lessons here a couple weeks ago, and much thanks to her terrific swim coaches, is gaining comfort in the water. She loves Coach Catie! Thank you for helping her grow each week in her skills and confidence.”

“My son really enjoys the lessons and loves his teacher! He’s always so excited to see her and get in the water. She is patient and a great instructor! All of the teachers I’ve observed as my son swims are the same and teach similarly. Which is so great when going to different levels and progressing.”
Kristin, Chicago, IL

“We’ve had both of my kids at another swim center since they were 2 years old. They had fun, but didn’t learn basic swimming skills as much as I would have liked. But after only their second lesson at Bear Paddle, my six year old son is swimming unassisted and my 4 year old daughter is almost there too!”
Joe, Aurora, IL


“My kids have learned quicker at Bear Paddle Swim School than at any lessons they have had before. Your program and instructors are phenomenal.”
Sarah, Aurora, IL


“I can’t say enough about this school and the staff. We spent a lot of time and money last summer on private lessons trying to get my 5 year old to swim with no success. After his 1st session at Bear Paddle this year, he was swimming underwater, floating on his back, and putting his face in the water… and having FUN while doing it!! Thank you Bear Paddle!!”
Emily, Aurora, IL


“The instructors are great with the kids and just as important they are great teachers. I would highly recommend Bear Paddle!”
Joe, Aurora, IL


“After spending a boatload of $ elsewhere and my kids getting NOWHERE, I gave Bear Paddle and try and am so glad I did. Both my girls (4/1/2 and 8) were fearful of the water and within a few days of the swim camp this summer, they were both able to float and swim with their faces in WITHOUT floaties!! I can not express how vast and rapid an improvement we got here because it is beyond words.”
Parent, Aurora, IL


“We have been thrilled with Bear Paddle and it’s hard to believe my kids are loving the water and actually swimming! We had a rough start with my 5-year-old, but all the instructors were so great with him, they made it a good experience even when he was freaking out. Now he’s swimming like a fish, and my 7-year-old is doing actual swim strokes and loving the water too. I would recommend Bear Paddle to everyone.”
Arwen, Aurora, IL
