Pool Closures

Weather Closure Policy

Per policy, when thunder is heard or lightning is seen, or within 10 miles, the pool must close until the thunder and/or lightning has stopped for at least 30 minutes. You will be required to leave the pool and the pool deck for your safety and the safety of our guards. If the pool will be closed for a short amount of time due to weather, we won’t post updates on social media. However, if the pool is expected to be closed all day, we will make every effort to update Ken-Caryl Ranch’s Facebook page.

The weather changes rapidly; therefore, delays and closures at the pool can happen rapidly as well. You can also monitor the weather using the WeatherBug app, just like our guards!

Advancement through the beginner level involves entering the water, following simple instructions from the instructor, blowing bubbles, and floating and kicking on their front and back with assistance.

Beginner: Octopus
(Ages: 6-9 years)

Time:
Mon-Thurs 10:45-11:15am

Our Octopi will work hard with instructors to become comfortable in the water through basic skills, including front and back floats, glides, coordinated arm and leg movements for front crawl, backstroke, and elementary backstroke with assistance, and jumping in from the side to swim to the instructor.

Intermediate: Octopus
(Ages: 6-9 years)

Time:
Mon-Thurs 10:45-11:15am
