Our Children at Youth Camps Deserve Additional Lifeguard Training
Lifeguarding at a youth camp is exceedingly challenging and far more demanding than lifeguarding at a traditional swimming pool or beachfront. What makes lifeguarding in a youth camp especially challenging? In a youth camp aquatic environment, the lifeguard is typically responsible for supervising a very large number of highly excited children of various ages, whose swimming abilities vary widely; and, those children are usually participating in a multitude of swimming activities simultaneously. To further complicate matters, the youth camp swimming area is often an outdoor beachfront setting with limited underwater visibility, uneven bottom, deep water, submerged objects, docks, rafts, play structures, rocks, marine life, sun glare, lightening, wind, rain, boats, canoes, and more hazards.
Because the youth camp aquatic environment is known to be so hazardous to children, many government supervisory agencies require that youth camp aquatic facilities employ and practice the “Buddy System”, complete with a Buddy Board, Buddy Tags, colored wrist bands, Buddy Checks, lost Buddy procedures, designated swimming areas for different activities, designated swimming areas for different swimming abilities, safe boating procedures, swim testing, and much more. The Lifeguard-Pro Lifeguard-Youth Camp certification course trains lifeguards to master each of these nationally recognized youth camps aquatic safety procedures, so they can better serve and protect children attending youth camps. That is why the Lifeguard-Pro Lifeguard-Youth Camp certification course is the choice of many Department of Health agencies, insurance companies, summer camps, day camps, and youth camp organizations across the country. Protect your campers. Avoid crippling lawsuits. Join us in our mission of saving lives. Contact Lifeguard-Pro.org today!
