ACKERMANN'S SWIM PROGRAM 2019 IN THE BEGINNING
HOW ACKERMANN'S GREW
Hot summers in St. Louis took “Happy Times Nursery School” from pre-school to swim camp in the summers with the invention of the first blow-up pool in 1947.
Where the pet duck “Quaky” swam, we built our first pool. This spot is now our Pool #3.
Alice and Al Ackermann worked hard to keep the swim camp running.
Our first in ground pool is now our Pool #3.
Swimming in the first inground pool with the giant homemade filters and heater.
As we grew, we built another pool, our #4.
Our big pool #4. The pipes now go through the walls instead of over the deck.
2014 We added a new beginner pool only 30” deep
We are now celebrating over 68 years of teaching children the life skill of swimming and water safety.
WE BUILT our 2nd INGROUND POOL
