Job Description

Head Lifeguard applicants must have a great personality, be hard working, detail oriented, work well as part of a team, be an outstanding communicator and love to solve problems. A capacity to learn and grow is a must. Ready for a challenge? We are looking for a Head Lifeguard at a Day Camp Waterfront which looks and acts more like a Resident Camp Waterfront. An optimal candidate for this position would have resident camp waterfront experience (or equivalent) or aquatics management experience. You will be responsible for supporting a Waterfront Director to manage a team of 15-20 lifeguard/swim instructors. Motivating our waterfront staff and instilling in them a strong sense of safety, warmth, enthusiasm, professionalism and pride is a crucial part of this role. You will also oversee our inflatable adventure course. All our swimming is done in a lake (no pools), using a floating dock system to separate and define swim areas.

If you are looking to forge a career in the Camp industry, in aquatics or in education you could not ask for a better experience than this Head Lifeguard position! Free LGT and/or WSI re-certs are available to the successful candidate! Equal Opportunity Employer.
