May a boy who is 7 yrs old go swimming together with his 4 yr old sister?

Answer:

Yes.

Although some traditions will not permit this, I don’t see a problem in this. Although for adults, physical closeness with sisters is wrong, there will not be a chinuch issue in this matter, whose basic essence doesn’t apply for such ages.
