Haven Holidays on a Mission to Get Children Swimming During May Half Term Holidays

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 19, 2010) - Can your kids swim? Haven Holidays are offering free Learn2Swim lessons to children holidaying at their 35 family holiday parks.

The lessons range from water confidence sessions for tinies to stroke improvement for children who simply need to improve their technique. 

Last year around 40,000 children benefitted from Haven's Learn2Swim lessons, making Haven the largest provider of swimming lessons in the private sector. This year cost conscious Mums and Dads will be delighted that Haven have waived any charges for the sessions in the hope that even more children will take part. The lessons, which take place every day over the May half term holidays, are given by lifeguards trained by the Swimming Teachers Association and come with that all important certificate to reward children for reaching the required standards.

What's more, Haven have teamed up with the RNLI to offer their 'Hit the Surf' programme to holidaymakers at Devon Cliffs and Kiln Park over the May half term week. Free of charge, the programme aims to make children more confident and capable at the beach and in the water - it's a great initiative to promote safer surfing and body boarding.

Haven offer a full programme of fun pool activities which are ideal for family breaks this May half term. Some of these activities include Aqua Jet Extreme, Aqua Gliders, fun inflatable sessions and the hugely popular 'Water Walkerz' – giant inflatable balls that you climb inside to bounce around on the surface of the pool. Check out the new Space Bowls available at Combe Haven near Hastings, Marton Mere near Blackpool and Thorpe Park, near Cleethorpes – and the fabulous indoor pool complex at Craig Tara in Scotland.

Prices for a half term break with Haven start at as little as £199 (based on three nights from 28th May for a family of four in Standard 2 bedroom accommodation at Craig Tara in Ayrshire, Caister, near Great Yarmouth or Perran Sands in Cornwall.) A four night midweek half term break at Devon Cliffs starts at £349 for a four people.
