Physically tough, mentally sharp, and passionate about  all-things-water; we at Frost Valley are fiercely proud of our Lifeguard team. We hire experienced staff and bring them to camp early, for nationally recognised trainings, and additional training on our own Lake Cole. For us the Waterfront is one of our most important program areas, as every our resident and day camp campers have the opportunity to access it heavily during their stay.

On Monday, after drilling their routines to perfection, the Waterfront team  offered swim tests to all our staff. The night sky on the calm water provided the perfect image to introduce you to our official first swimmers of the summer.

As well as providing safety, these lifeguards are the camp counselors of the water. The friendly smiles in the water that encourage swimmers as they swim by, the hand that pulls the tired swimmer out of the water. They are the reassuring words given to those who are looking to improve their skills in the water. They are the instructors who on one hand shed light on the difference between a C-stroke and a J-stroke in the canoes, and on the other correct the backstroke that turns to the left.

Here’s to our Lifeguards, the safety conscious counselors of the waterfront.
