    The Aquatics Program Leader with Headfirst Summer Camps will work on-site as the head of our Aquatics programming. The pool is home to one of the hallmark programs of our camps, where campers of all ages participate in daily recreational or instructional swim time.

    The Aquatics Program Leader will manage our Swim Instructors and Certified Lifeguards, as each member of the Aquatics team understands how swimming instruction is a crucial development tool for all campers. In addition to keeping safety top of mind, our Aquatics team fosters a warm, supportive environment that allows each camper to achieve their personal best in and out of the pool while developing independence. The Aquatics Program Leader is not only a motivational leader and coach but a compassionate instructor who is comfortable working with swimmers of all skill levels.
