Schroon Lake: Kids Town USA

If you are visiting for the first time, or hadn’t paid much attention in the past, there’s a ton for kids to do right here in Schroon.

Swimming, tennis, yoga, golf, soccer and basketball are just a few of the activities kids can participate in, if you ever hear the mantra “I’m bored”.

Swimming Lessons

Everyday, Monday through Thursday, The Town offers free swimming lessons at the Town Beach, taught by the lifeguards. We’ve heard rave reviews from families who have told us that how well their kids swim after their kids learned to swim here. Sign up with the guards.


For the young Yogi in your home, there is Kids Yoga, at our favorite studio, True North Yoga, every Tuesday from 10 am to 10.30 am. Deb Philp combines story telling, games and yoga poses for kids ages 5 – 12. @ 1073 Main Street. $5.  518-810-7871.


Tuesday and Thursday each week the Town offers Youth Tennis. The lessons are free and are available to players of all levels.  If your kids are newbies, they will learn the game and if they are budding Williams sisters in the making, the coaches will put them through their paces. For information contact the office at the Town Youth Commission at 518 532-7170 or 532-9309. Tuesdays @ 9 am and Thursdays @  4 pm, at the courts across from the Health Center.


Co-ed games for kids in grades 7 – 12 are at the Town Courts (opposite the Health Center) @ 6 pm – 8 – pm every Monday and Wednesday


For kids in grades 9 – 12, there is a soccer game each Thursday night from 6 pm – 8 pm at the field behind Schroon Lake Central School.


Golf Lessons tee off beginning on July 25 at the Town Course 6 pm – 7.30pm. Details at 518-532-9359.

Square Dancing

This is a whole lot of fun for young kids, who we have seen with wide smiles on their faces, with this old school interactive dance. Every Wednesday in the Town Park, starting at 7pm. Hit Stewart’s for a cold cone after, and make small talk with dozens of your new friends who have the same idea.
