Working at camp is an amazing experience and what better way to enjoy your summer than hanging out at the pool.  Lifeguards work in a team environment as they supervise guest safety, build relationships with campers, and lead fun pool games and activities. Enjoy a fun Christian community as you build relationships with other staff from all over the country while spending your time pool side in the beautiful outdoors.


Lifeguards start their day with a team meeting, followed by ensuring everything is clean and ready for the day.
