It is gratifying that in recent years in Kuusamo about 94 percent of those who have completed the
primary and lower secondary education (classes 1–6) can swim 200 metres.

Swimming skills give you freedom to move on and by water safely in different seasons.
The Sports and Fitness Services of Kuusamo organise swimming schools for children in June and during the autumn and winter holidays in schools, if necessary. There are groups available starting from the basics and onwards up to performing swimming marks. The basic groups are intended for children aged 5 or more who do not yet know how to dive, slide or swim. A child can attend the more advanced group, provided that he/she can already dive and swim a distance of five metres. As swimming skills accumulate you can perform swimming marks in a group for this purpose. There is a swimming school mainly for five consecutive days, 1.5 hours a day.

Kuusamo-opisto organises swimming schools for adults at weekends and Kuusamon Erä-Veikot has also a swimmingunit.
