In between camps and vacations my mom group gets together throughout the summer for fun outings. We recently ventured out to Ventura Aquatic Center and had so much fun!!!This place is a little tricky so you have to plan accordingly. They have set hours like M/W/F from 12-4 pm, Tuesday and Thursday from 1-4pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11:30am-4pm. You also have to get there about 30-45 minutes before to get in line as the places reaches capacity often. So our drill is to get there an hour before, eat lunch at the picnic tables while our bags are in line saving our spot.
Tip: they let camps and their Splash Pass holders in before the general public.
After we got our spot by the lounge chairs we ran to our favorite spot, the activity pool. Our next stop was the 2 water slides. The blue slide is uncovered and the green slide is covered. You have to be 42 inches to get on.Our elementary school kids loved the slides, but our toddlers were more comfortable staying in the activity pool slide. The pool was also a fun spot to hang out.

Tip: Every hour the Aquatic Center makes everyone come out for 5 minutes. This way everyone is accounted for and the facility can check their pools for any safety issues.
Lounging with the mamas on this beautiful summer day! Tip: Bring your own beach chairs for extra seating.We always end the day with shaved ice from the Kona Ice truck. Tip: The Kona Ice truck takes cash only.The kiddos!Love doing life with these amazing mamas!
