Erskine Lakes Beach Club is offered
to all ELPOA members. This very well structured and
organized club offers activities and swim lessons for
children ages 4-16 for approximately 8 weeks. Beach Club’s
counselors are American Red Cross certified instructors.
Lessons range from water exploration and basic skills for
younger children, stroke refinement and endurance skills
for children 7-13 and lifeguarding skills for teens (must
be 15). Swimming lessons are held during the week at all
three beaches from the end of June through August. Beach
Club children are organized into three groups, small fry
ages 4-8, pre-teens ages 9-12 and teens ages 13-16.
Activities offered by age group are:
4 year olds - swim lessons, story time, games, and arts & crafts.
5-6 year olds - swim lessons, games/races, tumbling, cheering, twirling, arts & crafts, diving and t-ball.
7-8 year olds - swim lessons, field activities, tennis, basketball, arts & crafts, cheering & twirling, newcombe, diving and soccer.

In addition to the daytime activities, there are social activities offered one night a week for each age group. Beach Club organizes field trips throughout the summer season, a karaoke night for the teens, sport competitions with surrounding area lakes, and trips to the bowling alley. Operating money is raised through dues and fundraising events. Our annual Tricky Tray which is held in August is our largest fundraiser, and a great time, too. There is a quiche luncheon one Tuesday during the summer and family bingo and ice cream sundae nights have proven to be great fun for all. Awards Night, the culmination to the Beach Club season, is held at the Main Beach amphitheater, with special evening performances by the children. There's an additional yearly fee for membership into this club. The membership fees are a $55 family fee plus $80.00 for each child. Beach Club focuses on providing the best social and recreational activities for children and promotes a close friendly relationship among its members!
