Every August since 1968, Graydon Pool has hosted summer day campers from Paterson for 3 afternoons a week for 3 consecutive weeks. These 9 days at Graydon provide a cool respite for these city kids with little, if any, opportunity to swim in their own community. Plus, thanks to the Ridgewood YMCA, the children receive swim instruction every day, providing them with water safety skills that will help keep them safe for a lifetime.
This year, C4S needs $110 per child to host the child for the full program. We need donations of money, new swimsuits, towels, and volunteers to make this work. Checks should be made payable to Citizens for Swimming. Checks can be left in C4S mailbox in Reeb. There will also be a drop-off box for donated items on the front porch at Reeb. Thank you!
