LIFEGUARDS & SWIM INSTRUCTORS
The Swim Program is the activity area where our camps place the greatest emphasis. Teaching campers to swim and be safe in the water is a top priority of our day camps. Lifeguards are required to be Lifeguard and CPR certified, but there are also opportunities for those who do not yet have certifications. Many of our camps offer Lifeguard Training courses which will help you get your required certification prior to the start of the camp season. To work in Nassau County, lifeguards must also be Nassau County certified. Additional responsibilities and pay is available at most camps for those lifeguards who are also WSI certified (Water Safety Instructor).
As in any great organization, the people working behind the scenes at camp are vital to the success of the team. In camp we call these staff members “support staff.” Camp support staff consists of nurses, office staff, web staff, kitchen staff, maintenance workers and security officers.
