Our Staff are assigned to points surrounding the pool and the diving boards to act as look-outs, in addition to the LAVC Lifeguards.
Campers do not get in the water until lifeguards and look-outs are in position. Other staff members are required to be in the water with the campers when not assigned to a look out position.
Halfway through the swim hour the staff in the water swap with the lookouts to maintain fresh eyes.
Campers that choose not to swim are brought indoors and supervised while they read and play small games.
Campers are encouraged to arrive at camp dressed for the beach, but still wear Closed Toed Shoes.
All Campers will get a wristband to identify them when they’re not wearing their camp shirt.
