The Bangor YMCA Junior Lifeguard Program is designed for youth ages 12 – 15 years old interested in learning a variety of lifesaving skills. Participants will learn basic First Aid including wilderness scenarios, CPR, and AED, as well as how to lifeguard pools, theme parks, rivers and streams, lake front, and ocean. They will learn about the hazards of the outdoor environment and the signs to look for, including exhaustion, heat stroke, hypothermia, and will learn how to treat these conditions as well as diabetic emergencies and their role as a first responder.
Weekly topics and pace of each session will depend on the age group. New students are always welcome!
