My dad taught my sisters and me, in a shallow and very cold trout stream that he dammed with rocks so the creek was deep enough for us to float in. First he taught us to float on our backs, then gradually introduced kicking, crawl stroke with breathing, and diving. We camped there 2 or 3 weeks every summer in elementary school years and learned more. Later we took Red Cross swimming classes to learn other strokes and lifesaving.
