Many former guards renewed their certifications while others took the complete course.
Lifeguard Training at Delphi High School
We are grateful that the local high school shares their indoor pool while the Camp pools have a chance to warm up for the season.

“Coordinator Training” is the first formal summer staff training of the year.
Talking about group dynamics and good communication skills.
It is a great time to get to know each other as a leadership team and to discuss any new activities or changes.
"Goal Setting" and "Taking Care of Yourself and Others"
Each village has two age Units, with two Unit Coordinators each. Each village also has two Village Directors and an Administrative Assistant.
Ready for the challenge!
Excited to be back!
Also included in the mix are the CILT Leaders, Creative Arts Director, High Ropes Assistant Director, and full time directors. It was a wonderful time of learning, sharing, and planning.
It’s going to be a great summer!
