Soccer Quest and Vancouver Whitecaps camps coming to Grand Forks

The Boundary soccer program was a huge success this past spring.
Kids can now register for a soccer summer camp right here in Grand Forks.

We will be offering a new unlimited use season pass that will be valid from Oct. 1 to Dec. 3.

With the purchase of the new fall season pass, you receive unlimited use of the pool during our summer pool hours for free from Aug. 1 to 19.

The pass deal is only available for purchase throughout the month of July.

Your current passes have no expiry dates so you can suspend them until the New Year and enjoy unlimited use in the fall.

The more you use the fall season pass, the better deal it becomes.

The fee for the season pass is based on our monthly pass fee. For more details on the fall pass, please give us a call.

We offer swim lessons throughout the summer with a new session set starting each week. The next session will start Monday, July 11 between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. daily.

Parent and Tot swim lesson summer evening camps offer parents with children under three-years of age, a chance to introduce the little ones to water in a fun, safe environment.

Parents learn water safety skills and proper techniques, making the child’s first experience to the pool a positive one.

The camps will be offered four evenings a week starting July 11 and again Aug. 8 from 6:30 to 7 p.m.

Please give us a call today to register.
