Junior Lifeguard Camp

Ages 13 – 14 years old

Have you always wanted to be a Lifeguard? Join us for 2 weeks of Junior Lifeguard Camp, where participants will learn what it takes to join an elite team of Lifeguards. Participants will learn how to perform rescues, how to do CPR, and leadership skills. Additionally, each day will include a group workout, games, and free swim time. The second week will include a field trip to Rainbow Falls Waterpark.  For an extra fee, participants will be invited to compete against other Junior Lifeguards at the Illinois Parks and Recreation Association Guard Games (7/19/2024).

*Certification requires participants to be 15 years or older so Junior Lifeguards will not receive certification, but they will learn the skills to pass the certification and join the EGPD team after they turn 15.
