Certified lifeguard personnel will be onsite for training, Q&A and demonstration.

The skills covered in the water session can help Girl Scouts earn First Aid badges in multiple age levels. This resource (linked to First Aid Badges.pdf) will help identify what skills are covered in each level of First Aid Badges.
