Junior Lifeguard Camp (JLC)

Serious fun … that’s the Carleton Junior Lifeguard Camp in a nutshell. A serious purpose, lifesaving, coached in a fun way. Junior Lifeguards will be introduced to the 3-level Canadian Swim Patrol program (Rookie, Ranger and Star Patrol). The JLC is a place for kids 9 to 11 years to:

  • learn about lifesaving and lifeguarding
  • experience lifeguarding in a ‘Club’ atmosphere
  • make friends and have a great time
  • get fit and strive for personal bests
  • begin to progress through the 3-level Swim Patrol program
  • prepare for Bronze Star
  • a daily cafeteria lunch and a Lifesaving Camp T-shirt are included
  • drop-off and pick-up will be in the Field House

Registration for our Summer 2018 JLC Camps begins on January 15, 2018. There are no camps scheduled on Mondays July 2 (Canada Day Stat) or August 6 (Civic Holiday). Many of our summer lifesaving camps will fill, so if you find that a preferred camp is sold-out, please add your name to the WAIT LIST.


Registration by phone or in person is on available during our hours of operation. Register online 24/7. To register in person, visit our Welcome Centre in the Alumni Hall.
