What to Expect:
Campers will have 4 options:

  • Option 1: Parent/Guardian requires that the child always wear a lifejacket while swimming.
  • Option 2: Parent/Guardian chooses to have their child take a swim test to be in the water without the lifejacket. Those who do not pass the swim test will be required to wear a life jacket.
  • Option 3: Parent/Guardian allows their child to bypass the swim test and be in the water without a lifejacket. Lifeguards have final say and if they deem that a child needs a lifejacket, a lifejacket will be required.
  • Option 4: Parent/Guardian does not allow their child to swim.

Those that need lifejackets are tagged with a specific color wrist band, and those that don’t will receive a different color wrist band.
