Wonderful Wednesdays for Pool Jr. Guards dates meet off site at Depot Park at 8:30am.
Exact dates to be determined. (need a minimum of 6 in our camp to take this field trip).

Jr. Guard Camp teaches kids how to identify distressed swimmers, trains them in rescue skills, first aid techniques & CPR skills. Swim lessons will perfect existing strokes, swim workouts will focus on endurance. The kids in the program are taught information meant to make a impact on their lives. Jr. Guards in our camp have lots of fun too.

Each day starts with warm dryland drills, exercises, and stretching to increase flexibility. Daily interactive activities include a water safety topic for discussion, stroke clinics, swim lessons and guarding skills. Special visits from AMR Ambulance solidify what they have learned in First Aid and CPR lectures as well as peak the interest of future of emergency personnel. On Wonderful Wednesday, a field trip to the Downtown Fire Station could ignite interest in these careers at an early age as well as discovering the Sanctuary Exploration Center with a guided tour. Each 3 week session will have one Wonderful Wednesday! Dates to be announced as they are confirmed with the FD and the Exploration Center.

Through our Pool Jr. Guard Program we hope to encourage all our Seahorse Swimmers to continue American Red Cross’s Commodore E. Longfellow’s journey of encouraging “bathers to be swimmers and swimmers to be lifesavers.”

Prerequiste: Level 3/4. Ability to swim 25 yrd continually and no fear of 7 feet of water, 1 minute treading H2O, picking up an object off the bottom of the pool at 3 feet.
