Job Description

Working as a Lifeguard/Swim Instructor, you will provide swim instruction and lifeguarding to boys and girls, aged from 4 to 15. Our campers attend Camp for an average of 6 weeks so you have the time to build relationships and also develop their skills significantly over the course of the summer. This is as rewarding and interactive as a lifeguard/swim instructor position can be! You will be part of a large team of waterfront staff and receive ongoing training and feedback. You will be assisted by Counselors during Instructional and Free swim periods and be supported by an experienced Head Lifeguard and Waterfront Director at all times. Free Lifeguard and WSI certification courses will be running at Camp in June before Camp opens and are available to successful applicants if they are not already certified or need to re-certify. This is a benefit worth up to $1000 ($500 per course) and is something that is transferable to other jobs in the future! Equal Opportunity Employer. The upkeep and basic maintenance of the lakefront beach area and docks is also part of the job.

Unlike most lifeguarding summer jobs, we GUARANTEE the hours and work for the whole summer, rain or shine!
