Unaccompanied children

Unaccompanied children are unable to swim at our complex. Children’s safety is paramount; our policy is all children under 14 years of age must be accompanied and actively supervised by a parent/caregiver aged over 16 years at all times. All children in the water under the age of 7 must be actively supervised and within arm’s reach of a parent/caregiver at all times.
