River Nene

Swimming with Dragons


Exciting pool sessions designed to help kids learn more about amphibians and reptiles whilst having great fun and increasing confidence in the water!

These FREE sessions run for 1 hour and are packed full of fun games using fantastic floating props designed to help children imagine what it’s like to be an amphibian or reptile living in the U.K.

During Swimming with Dragons you could be a newt finding food or a frog avoiding predators – the world is your oyster, or as we like to say: the pond is your newt egg!

The River Nene Dragon Finder team will be transforming swimming pools in various places along the River Nene using giant lilypad, snake and tadpole floats. Come along to a session and experience what it’s like to live in a pond. Suitable for school groups, kids clubs and family groups of up to 30 people. Participants need to be able to swim 25 metres unaided or be accompanied by a responsible adult in the water at all times.

To see if we have any upcoming ‘Swimming with Dragons’ sessions, visit our events page, or please get in touch if your group would like to arrange your own session.
