The Swimming Hole was founded in 2001 by Jake and Donna Carpenter as a non-profit community pool with the mission to foster the joy of swimming and benefits of water safety as well as general physical fitness and rehabilitation to all residents and visitors of the greater Stowe area. The safety of our community is our top priority. Due to the increase in cases of COVID-19 in Vermont over recent weeks the decision has been made to cancel the event on 9/25 in the interests of the health and safety of guests, speakers, and volunteers.
2021 marks The Swimming Hole’s 20th Anniversary, we will be taking the opportunity of this milestone year to focus on community awareness and involvement, reaching out to our valued members and the community to learn how we can improve our services and offerings.

Dear Fellow Swimming Hole Members,
Did you know that The Swimming Hole Nonprofit Community Pool & Fitness Center was the key community infrastructure that sealed the deal for my family and me to move to Stowe eight years ago? And as an ex-ski racer turned competitive swimmer in my late teens, having a world class pool near my home has been a joy and privilege. This year This Swimming Hole is proudly celebrating its 20th Anniversary and it needs our support to complete necessary capital improvements and repairs to ensure another 20+ years.
This is why The Swimming Hole will be organizing some exciting fundraising events through the coming year, some of which will include you sharing stories of what The Swimming Hole has meant to you over the years. Your contributions will secure its continuation for all of us and generations to come. We hope that you will be a willing contributor whether sharing what The Swimming Hole has meant to you and/ or a welcome financial contribution in the coming year as we lay out the many opportunities to participate.
For me, The Swimming Hole has provided such a consistent high-quality experience for my family, from being the perfect place for my son to learn to swim, to helping me in recover from ACL surgery, to allowing me to train for local and international triathlons. I look forward to supporting it this year.
I hope you will join me in ensuring the future and the quality of this amazing resource.
