A Test, Mark and Protect Program Helps Day Campers Have Fun

Summer day campers have always enjoyed swimming at the Y. This year is no exception. Our “Test, Mark and Protect” program helps keep campers safe in the pool area. Those campers wanting to swim in the deep end must be able to pass a swim test. They are issued a neckband to wear so guards and staff can easily identify that they are capable of being in the deeper water.

Some campers are equipped with Coast Guard approved Lifejackets. Finally, campers are further protected by camp staff who are often in the water or engaging campers with them in activity.

 

Here are some pictures from swim time!
