Camden War Memorial Pool family fun day set to make a splash

It's time to pull the swimming gear out of storage and dust off your goggles - Camden War Memorial Pool has officially reopened.

To celebrate the pools reopening The Y (formerly YMCA) and Camden Council will host a family fun day at the pool on Saturday, October 12 from 10am to 2pm.

Entry to the pool will be free during the event, with a number of exciting activities planned for residents of all ages to enjoy.

Camden mayor Theresa Fedeli encouraged residents to get comfortable in the water as the weather warms up.

"One of the best things about summer in this country is cooling off at your local pool, playing in the water at somewhere like Curry Reserve, spending the day at a water theme park or heading to the beach," Cr Fedeli said.

"Knowing how to swim is a skill all Australians need to learn - it could save your life.

"We have swimming lessons and squads available for residents of all ages, and skill levels, at our leisure centres."

Activities at the family friendly season opening event will be Connect Four, giant Jenga, egg and spoon races, sack races, family Zumba, a naturopath seminar, Street Gym sports, including soccer and Oztag, face painting, a colouring-in competition, a photobooth, prizes for the best dressed attendee and lucky door prizes and a Coon Cheese Toastie Van.

Local youth services, including Headspace and Traxside, will also be there on the day holding their own fun activities.
