Swimming Lifeguards and Watchers Ratios

Swimming tip for leaders: remember, at minimum, you need to have one adult who is certified as a lifeguard and one watcher who is certified in American Red Cross Basic Water Rescue for every 10 girls swimming.  If you are swimming in a lake, stream or river you must have a waterfront certified lifeguard, in addition to a watcher.  This information is located in the Safety Activity Checkpoints booklet under Water Sports (pages 30 - 34).  Click here to read more now...  If you have questions please e-mail liz.williams@girlscoutshcc.org
