What If a Child Can’t Swim?

Parents do not have to worry if their children cannot swim. There are many safety precautions in place to protect youth. For example, qualified lifeguards certified in CPR and First Aid are always on duty to make sure that children are safe when swimming. Additionally, the summer program will assess all kids’ swimming abilities. There are instructors on site that can help interested youth improve their swimming skills or learn to swim.

Boating is another common summer camp activity. Lifeguards are on duty to watch over youth, and kids are given instruction on how to paddle and stay safe while out in canoes, kayaks, and other watercraft. Children are always fitted with life jackets to ensure their safety, even youth who know how to swim. Some camps take youth off-camp to go swimming at the beach or use other programs’ boats and facilities. Any field trips off camp have the same safety precautions in place.
