Founders Jenny McCuiston, a high-school state swimming champ and Olympic-trial qualifier, and Chris McCuiston, a past MSU baseball captain and draft pick for the Detroit Tigers, know firsthand the positive effect learning a sport can have on a child's confidence and courage. When they realized what a high demand there was for quality swim lessons in the region they dedicated themselves to researching the industry and developing their trademark curriculum, and in 2006 the first Goldfish Swim School threw open its doors. Today, Red Cross–trained swim instructors at seven locations help little ones as young as 4 months get acquainted with the art of swimming with private swim lessons and classes of no more than four students. Youngsters splash and kick through their indoor pool kept toasty warm at 90 degrees while parents make encouraging fishy faces and pet fish make reproachful parenty faces from the glass-enclosed viewing area. Goldfish Swim School also hosts birthday celebrations and special events complete with colorful balloons and batches of cupcakes. Beach-themed decor splashes across each swim facility, creating a fun, laid-back environment that abounds with vibrant colors and animal accents. The Treasure Island pro shop boasts a range of aquatic accessories, and the snack shack doles out healthy treats and fresh-baked cookies.
Rock climbing is exhausting. By the time you get to the top of the wall, you might want nothing more than to let go and fall into a pool of refreshing, crystalline water. Unfortunately, that's not possible at most climbing gyms—but it's a signature attraction at Barefoot Bay Family Aquatic Center. The park's AquaClimb water wall looms over a pool, beckoning climbers to scale its height and then drop with a splash.
Thrill seekers might also enjoy the enclosed body flume slide—a slippery ride in total darkness that ends with a watery plunge. But if you'd rather relax or reenact Moby–Dick in slow motion, then floating down the 740-foot lazy river in an inner tube might be more your speed. Elsewhere in the family-oriented center are slides and pools for all ages, including a wading pool for toddlers, a lap pool for working out, and a deep well for divers. When you're tired of swimming, head to the shaded concession area for a snack or a kick back in a complimentary lounge chair for a nap.
Owner Debbie Stoffregen has taught children to swim for more than 15 years, a background that helped her develop Catch the Wave Swim Club's unique instructor training program. Stoffregen only mints adult teachers and personally coaches them once they have achieved certifications in Red Cross CPR, lifeguarding, AED, and first aid. Instructors teach water safety with compassion, creating a family-like atmosphere to help adults overcome their fears, introduce infants as young as three months old (accompanied by a guardian) to the warm, 90-degree pool, and acclimate adolescents to their newly sprouted gills. Surrounded by healthy, confident swimmers, Stoffregen realized the sport could be used as a therapeutic intervention, and created classes for special-needs individuals and those desiring a low-impact way to stay fit.
