WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF DETERMINING OUR 2018 CAMP DATES

Looking to earn your Bronze Cross? This is a crash course that will be facilitate by University of Guelph Aquatic Staff. You must be between the ages of 13-18 to participate in this course.  

Note: This is a physically demanding certification course.

Get Bronzed! This one week crash course will take participants through instruction and physical practice in attempts to achieve certification in the following Lifesaving Society certifications; Bronze Medallion, Emergency First Aid with CPR Level B, and Bronze Cross. Core components will include understanding of the lifesaving principles through water-rescue education - judgement, knowledge, skill and fitness.

A varied day of in-water practice, class room sessions, and fun scenario play will be the field for candidates to learn CPR, first aid, water rescues, team work, communication, and endurance, including a timed 600m swim. Participants will be in and out of the water several times a day. Packing more than one bathing suit and towel is highly recommended. Skill evaluation will be on-going, therefore, 100% participation is required.

The Bronze Camp will be run by Aquatic staff who hold both NLS and Advanced Instructor certifications through the Lifesaving Society.
