Lap Swim Program for Minors

Are you a minor and a super lap swimmer?  If so, you may earn your lap swim sticker and be able to swim laps in the lap pool at Trout Creek Recreation Center!

As you may already know, during the summer season, the Trout Creek Recreation Lap Pool is used for lap swim only.

Starting Monday, July 16, we will introduce a new program for all minors wishing to participate in lap swim at the lap pool called the lap swim sticker program. 

Everyone is required to pass a lap swim skill test in order to earn a lap swim sticker. Applicants will be required to swim 100 yards in 4 minutes or less in any combination of the competitive strokes. The 100 yards must be continuous and unassisted. A short orientation to the lap pool deck rules will also be conducted.

Lap swim sticker skill tests must be conducted by a certified Tahoe Donner lifeguard and will be available from 10 a.m. – 7 p.m., daily.

If you are unable to make those times, please call the aquatics coordinator at (530) 582-9627 to schedule another time.

Become a Tahoe Donner Trooper



Believe it or not you still have about two weeks left to become a Tahoe Donner Trooper. This summer we introduced this new program to everyone who visits Tahoe Donner.

The Tahoe Donner Trooper Guide is full of challenges - from building sandcastles at the Beach Club Marina, to stopping in at Bikeworks to say hello to the friendly staff.

It’s really simple to join in the fun! Pick-up your Tahoe Donner Trooper Guide at the Trout Creek Recreation Center, the Recreation Information Hut or Member Services office at Northwoods Clubhouse. Everyone who collects stamps at five of the eight challenges will become 2012 Tahoe Donner Trooper! Winners will get a cool hat and be entered to win the grand prize. Guides must be completed by September 3 and the grand prize winner will be announced at Fall Festival on October 13.

Get outside, explore, try something new, and have fun with the entire family before the summer is over!

Stored Value

Does the term Stored Value mean anything to you while you’re at Tahoe Donner? Did you know you can put money on your Tahoe Donner Membership ID cards? It is called Stored Value. You no longer have to carry money or your credit card with you when you visit Tahoe Donner’s amenities. It’s very easy to put value (money) on your card. You can come into the Member Services office with your credit card and Tahoe Donner staff can put the money on your card for you. Or you can call them at (530) 587-9400 ext. 0.

To redeem your stored value, simply tell the Tahoe Donner staff that you have Stored Value on your Tahoe Donner Member or Guest ID card. Your receipt will display the balance left on the ID card.

Remember to always take your Tahoe Donner Member or Guest ID card with you to use stored value at the amenities. This program was introduced last summer and received rave reviews and participation. So, don’t worry about carrying your wallet, stored value and your membership ID or Guest card is all you need this summer at your personal resort.
