Junior Lifeguards

Ages 12 - 14

Empower Your Future with Essential Lifesaving Skills!

This exceptional week-long program is specially designed for 12–14 year-olds who want to develop their leadership skills and learn from our experienced lifeguards. Students will be immersed in a variety of life-saving skills, including first aid, CPR, AED usage, water rescue techniques, and ways to prevent aquatic emergencies. Along with learning new skills, participants will also gain invaluable experience working in teams, developing a sense of responsibility, and appreciating the importance of physical fitness.

Campers will have the opportunity to practice their lifeguarding skills and engage in team-building activities while also gaining hands-on experience teaching swim lessons. Additionally, the program includes two exciting off-site excursions – a trip to Gene Coulon Beach Park on Wednesday and a visit to Wild Waves on Friday to wrap up the camp.
