7:00-9:00 a.m.: Wake up & attend staff meeting
After helping campers to get up and ready for the day and eating breakfast, the lifeguards attend the program staff meeting. Here, they discuss the events of the day, plus make plans for leading the evening program with activities like arts and crafts, a dance, games and more!
9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.: Lifeguarding around camp
After the meeting, the lifeguards head to their assigned area for the day. There is plenty of water action around camp, so they could be assigned to the pool, waterfront or mud pit! Lifeguards ensure boaters’ and swimmers’ safety during the campers’ exciting day!
12:30-2:30 p.m.: Lunch and a break
At 12:30, everyone meets up with their cabin for lunch. Just after lunch comes rest hour where campers can play games, relax, take a nap or just hang out. The lifeguards use this time to recoup after a busy morning.
2:30-5:30 p.m.: More lifeguarding!
During hot afternoons, the waterfront can get busy with boat rides, swimmers, fishers and mud pit divers! Lifeguards must stay alert and prepared for any situation that could arise.
5:30-6:30 p.m.: Dinner break
All program staff meet with their cabins to help at dinner and to hang out with the campers.
6:30-8:00 p.m.: Evening program
After dinner, the program team meets to set up for the evening’s festivities. The program for campers begins at 7 p.m. where lifeguards and other staff lead the campers in playing music, dressing up, dancing, hosting games and camping out!
