Aurora families love us!

We have had an amazing experience at Bear Paddle/ Aurora with Tyler and his team. My son is autistic and minimally verbal. Tyler was extremely open to my son coming in, meeting the staff, and be introduced to swim lessons. The staff have been extremely patient and given my son a lot of encouragement while learning to swim at his own pace! I love this inclusive environment and will continue to have my son learn to swim there!

My daughter loves it! Very friendly and warming place for kids. Our instructor Lexi is awesome she is very attentive with her students. My daughter has gotten very comfortable with her. We love our experience here at bear paddle.
Marlen Romero
Wonderful experience! The managers Tyler, Bryan and Cassidy are a great team to work with! Their entire staff is also very helpful at all times. My grandson who had a fear of getting in the water is no longer afraid and has turned into a great swimmer. Thank you to everyone at Bear Paddle for the wonderful experience!
