Swimming & Aquatic Activities Pool closure Clean pools are fun pools! Keep these things in mind the next time you visit the pool at Panorama: • Showers are required before entering the pools to wash off any dirt and body oils (BC Health Act). • Please use the washroom before entering the pool. • If you have children, ask throughout the swim if they need to use the washroom. • Parents are strongly encouraged to use swim diapers for their young children. Children under 3 years of age must wear a swim diaper. • Reusable and disposable child-sized diapers can be purchased at reception. If you forget your swim diaper, please ask reception for a sample. • Caregivers are encouraged, where appropriate, to use swim diapers or adult pool pants for their children or clients.

Slider wants to remind you children under 3 years of age must wear a swim diaper.

Pool Closures are an inconvenience for everyone. If a pool is closed due to an accident, it may be closed for a half hour or up to 13 hours. It takes a little bit of effort from everyone to keep our pools clean and open! Thank you for your cooperation!

Accessible Waterslide Panorama Recreation offers the only accessible waterslide in North America! The waterslide features an elevator from the pool deck to the top.

The waterslide also features lifts at the top and the bottom of the waterslide to assist entry and removal for the person with a disability. For those who are unable to support themselves or require significant assistance, assisted double riding is available! There are 3 Waiver forms that must be filled out for the Parent, Caregiver, and the Patron. Waivers can be picked up at reception or downloaded from our website www.panoramarecreation.ca. Go to the Swimming Pool Drop in Schedule for more information. Waterslide as well as assisted double riding videos are viewable too! Special gear must be worn to protect the person with a disability as well as the Caregiver or Parent riding the waterslide. Panorama Lifeguards and Staff are happy to assist with any questions or concerns you may have. Please bring your completed waiver forms to the lifeguards to review prior to riding the waterslide. Happy Riding!

Swimming & Aquatic Activities Hailey Casey Hailey has been working at Panorama for the past 3 years as a lifeguard and swim instructor. Hailey has always had a love for swimming and knew that working at Panorama would be an ideal job for her. Hailey’s favorite levels to teach are Sea Turtle, Sea Otter, Salamander and Swim Kids 6. Her passion for teaching swim lessons is evident because she is outgoing, fun and loves working with kids. Some of Hailey’s next goals in aquatics is to obtain her Aquafit Module. Hailey is also busy at University of Victoria working on her Kinesiology degree. Her goal is to obtain her degree in two years and then go traveling to Thailand and Australia. First she will travel to Brazil next summer for the 2014 Fifa World Cup! If you do not see Hailey at the pool you might see her playing soccer or skiing/ snowboarding. Not many people know that she was only three years old when she first learned how to ski. Now she spends as much time as she can hitting the slopes up on Mount Washington or at Whistler. Hailey has a swimming tip for everyone. “The more often you take your child swimming outside of swim lesson time, the more confident they become in the water and can develop new skills”. Thank you Hailey!
