BSA Lifeguard Camp

The BSA Lifeguard Camp is an intensive program that will involve the Scout for most of the camp week, including evenings. Scouts will learn multiple rescue techniques including rescue from a watercraft, swimming extension rescue, active drowning rescue, passive drowning rescue, and submerged victim rescue. Course also covers long shallow diving, stride jumping, compact jump and defense and grip escapes and backboarding procedures. Scouts will need to pass a written exam on theory and knowledge showing an
understanding of aquatics program and emergency management skills.

The BSA Lifeguard course will help you develop skills and experience that will be valued by colleges and future employers. Itís a great way to demonstrate what you can offer. Colleges and employers look for applicants who can deal effectively with people, who have a take charge attitude and who are willing to work to develop new skills. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be certified in Lifeguarding, First Aid, and CPR/AED for Lifeguards.
