Aquatic Camps

Teamwork. Leadership. Rescue.

Dive into the world of lifeguarding this summer and prepare for one of the most rewarding jobs you will ever have. We have lifeguarding options for ages 10 and up.

Responsible youths can take their babysitters course and be ready to tackle looking after younger kids.

We will not be offering Mermaid University this year. We look forward to welcoming mermaids back to the pool in the future.
