How safe is your waterfront?

By March 5, 2015

At the Camp Kintail waterfront safety is always a priority. The Waterfront Directors have current National Lifesaving Society (NLS) certifications and current Standard First-Aid/CPR-C certifications. They ensure that our beach meets all of the OPHEA Guidelines and Lifesaving Society’s regulations for a safe swim zone. Waterfront Directors provide training for our guard staff specific to the Kintail beach. The Watercraft Directors are in charge of our canoeing and kayaking program, and are qualified by the Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association.

Students wear properly fitted lifejackets during watercraft sessions with canoes, kayaks, and stand up paddleboards. Each boat is equipped with a rescue kit in case of emergency. Our swimming area is both sandy and shallow, no one will be swimming in an area they cannot touch the ground.
