CAROLINA BEACH - Carolina Beach Ocean Rescue recently held a five day Junior Lifeguard Camp June 26th to June 30th and held a graduation event at the Boardwalk Lifeguard Station.
Another camp is scheduled for July 31st to August 4th. The purpose of the camps is to familiarize participants with ocean and beach safety skills. This is not a "learn to swim" program. Swimming skills are required. Course instruction includes an introduction to ocean safety with instruction on how to identify hazards at the beach and in the ocean as well as how to minimize the risk of injury.
The junior lifeguards will get plenty of fresh air and sunshine along with exercise while participating daily team relays involving swimming, running and paddling.
Daily Activities can include:
Learn about ocean hazards and safety education and essential life guarding skills.
Opportunity to meet and sit with the career lifeguards for a day.
Students gain a wide variety of skills and knowledge including ocean/beach activities, first aid, ocean familiarity, CPR, rescue techniques, physical fitness and water safety education and respect for the ocean.
Ocean Activities can include:
• Swim Relay;
• Rescue Relay;
• Paddle board Relay;
• Land Line pull;
• Beach Flags.
Times for the camps are 8AM to 12PM each day. 9 to 17 year olds can participate in Sessions I & II. One session of camp is $140 per applicant. Each additional sessions or family member is $100. Applications are available online at www.carolinabeach.org or call 910-458-2985 for more information.
