"Bear Paddle provided such a great swim experience for my daughter. She went into swim camp apprehensive and left after 4 weeks feeling confident in the water. We will definitely be scheduling swim classes now that camps are over. We love Bear Paddle!"
"I highly recommend this swim school! I enrolled my son last summer and I'm impressed how far he's come learning proper techniques and all! The instructors are great. They seem to care about each swimmer's progress. My son loves the patches they give out after achieving a skill/technique. They also make it fun and engaging for the kids. The staff in general are very helpful and welcoming."
"I love the Bear Paddle School. My son started off scared and in the matter of 5 weeks, he is very comfortable in the water! He is on his way to swimming like a fish! They cater to children and make learning to swim fun! I highly recommend this school for all children! Thank you Bear Paddle Oakley Station!"
