Lifeguard (Child and Youth)

Have you ever wanted a summer job, where the reward is making others smile and seeing friendships blossom? We, the Camp Bowen Society for the Visually Impaired, are seeking a talented individual for the role of lifeguard at our child and youth camp, which will take place from July 8-12 on Bowen Island. The ideal candidate will have completed their lifeguard training and be first aid certified. Experience working with children or people with visual impairments is an asset but not a requirement.

  • Help ensure the safety of campers in and around the docks.
  • Complement the primary first aid attendant by providing first aid if necessary.
  • Enjoy your job.
  • Assist with the supervision of camper activities.
