Water Safety Day Camps
The Lifesaving Society's Water Safety Day Camps operate
throughout the summer and bring the Society's essential Swim, First
Aid, Lifesaving and Lifeguard training programs to communities
accross Prince Edward Island.
Customized according to the age and skill levels of the
participants, our week-long camps are taught by certified
instructors who provide an enjoyable and educational experience for
children in a safe and fun environment. Don't miss this opportunity
to empower your child with lifelong skills while having a blast in
the water this summer!
Transition from the Canadian Red Cross to the Lifesaving
The Canadian Red Cross has decided to wind down its involvement
in all swim and lifeguard programming across Canada in order to
direct more attention to surging humanitarian demands in other
areas. As part of that decision, Red Cross worked closely with
Lifesaving Society Prince Edward Island to ensure a smooth
transition of the PEI Water Safety Day Camp program.
Returning participants can consult this conversion chart to help decide
what level is appropriate to register their child.
