Spirit Cottage Pool
The St.Amant Spirit Cottage pool is available for use by people we support, their families, and all St.Amant staff (including when not on shift) and opens summer 2021. Due to the pandemic, guests must signup for specific times. A sign-up link will be shared at a later date. Pool Program Facilitators will be onsite and are all lifeguard certified.
- Physical distancing guidelines apply to all guests who may need help in the pool.
- Up to 10 people can be in the pool area at once: a maximum of 5 people in the pool and 5 on deck.
- The pool is only open to independent swimmers this summer. The swimmer must be able to enter and exit the pool independently and keep their head above water without assistance from another person. The lifeguards have the right to deem individuals unfit to use the pool if they feel someone cannot swim independently.

Through a grant with Canada Summer Jobs, we are employing four Pool Program Facilitators for the summer. All four are lifeguard certified. Staff should note that the lifeguards cannot provide direct care to anyone unless it is an emergency situation. When you come to the pool, please ensure you bring your own items such as towels, wipes, sunscreen, etc. There’s a washroom, change room, and pool house at the pool. In addition, furniture has been purchased to make time at the pool a more enjoyable experience. A barbecue is also available but you must bring your own barbecue utensils.
- The pool is behind the St.Amant Spirit Cottage located at 444 River Road. Click here for directions.
