Get ready to have fun while learning how to become a future leader of the ocean! This is a great opportunity to get a basic overview in First Aid, CPR, AED, and waterfront rescue skills. There will be an emphasis towards physical fitness, oceanfront hazards, and marine ecology. This program also incorporates activities such as snorkeling, boogie boarding, beach flags and rescue tube relays. Students must be able to swim two laps continuously and tread water for one minute. This is not a certifying course.
