Go to the lake alone? If I look out my front window I can see the lake and there are 2 lifeguards on duty.

I don't think I would, just because that seems sad to go alone. I'd want them to at least bring a friend.

10 or 12 is the first thing that popped into my mind, but they would HAVE to have a friend with them. I don't think I would let them go completely alone until they were at least 14/15. Also, they would have to know how to swim very well for it to even be considered.

Depends on how mature the child is, how trustworthy, how well they can swim....

Quoting sarah824:
