Camaray pool open to swimming

OROVILLE – The Camaray Motel will be allowing its pool to be used by the general public six days a week for a small fee.

“The Camaray Motel is pleased to allow its pool to be used by the general public. Both the owners and the managers want to serve the community in this way,” said Clyde Andrews, who manages the motel with his wife Sandy.

To help defray the costs of pool management, a modest fee of $1 per swim or $20 for a pass for the season. The second and third family member will be at half price, with subsequent family members free so that a family will never pay more than $40 for the season, according to Andrews. Children under 18 years of age must be registered for the first swim by a parent or legal guardian.

Public swim hours will be Sunday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays are reserved for families with a parent present and there will be no public swimming on Saturday.

The pool operates without a lifeguard. Children under 13 are not allowed to swim without an adult present (the motel does not provide the supervision). Children 13 to 17 years of age can not swim alone. More information will be provided upon initial registration. Registration will be during normal Lobby hours, 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.. The pool could be made available for private groups as well.

The Camaray Pool is licensed and monitored by the Okanogan County Health Department. For more information and registration forms, see or call the motel at (509) 476-3684.
