Carmichaels Swimming Pool and Day Camp Closes
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WAYNESBURG – Due to low attendance and lack of lifeguards, Greene County Commissioners and the Department of Parks and Recreation announce the closure of Carmichaels Day Camp and swimming pool for the remainder of the season.
Carmichaels Day Camp attendance has been as low as zero children for some days and even at the highest attendance rate does not justify keeping the camp open. Carmichaels Day Camp is cancelled for the remainder of the summer. The camps were free to attend, but if families purchased pool passes for use with day camp, they can receive a refund for that purchase.
Since opening the pools this summer, the county has continually struggled to maintain adequate lifeguards available to keep both Waynesburg and Carmichaels pools open. With the increase in COVID-19 positive cases in the county, new guidance from the Governor’s Office increasing requirements of masking and maintaining social distancing has become impossible to maintain staff requirements at both swimming pools. Swim lessons will be discontinued and the Carmichaels pool will remain closed until next season.
Refunds are available for swim lessons and pool passes. For individuals who purchased Carmichaels’ pool passes, all passes, no matter the color or timeframe will be honored at Waynesburg Water Park without restrictions. You may come anytime, with any valid pass to swim at Waynesburg Water Park.
Additional information can be obtained on the Greene County Commissioners Facebook page or by calling (724) 852-5210.
