A passport to summer fun

Posted: 13th June 2018

With the summer holidays soon approaching, why not set your child up for a summer challenge by taking part in Edinburgh Leisure’s ‘Summer Swim Passport’. Not only will the children be keeping active and trying new challenges, but they could win a month’s free swimming for the family.

The aim of the ‘Summer Swim Passport’ is to try different water-based activities, chosen from a list. Once the challenge is achieved, the child gets their passport signed by a member of staff. After seven challenges or signatures have been achieved, the passport can be handed in to any one of Edinburgh Leisure’s centres, where it will be entered into a prize draw to win unlimited family swimming for a month (terms and conditions apply). Any child feeling energetic can complete more than one passport over the summer.

From simple things like going for a swim to more challenging suggestions like diving from a board at the Royal Commonwealth to doing a somersault in the water, there’s plenty of activities to choose from to keep the kids amused.  Cost of the activities will vary.

The ‘ Summer Swim Passport’ takes place from 30 June – 13 August.   Some of the Edinburgh Leisure pools may be closed for a few weeks over the summer, for example the Royal Commonwealth Pool will be closed in the run-up and during the European Championships – Glasgow 2018, where the diving element will be taking place (1-13 August).
