Summer Camp CPR

Hands-on, Instructor-based

Pediatric First Aid, CPR & AED for Summer Camp Counselors (PFAC-S)

Interested in spending the summer as a Camp Counselor or VBS teacher?  Your main responsibility is the general safety and development, growth, and skill achievement of the participants in your group.

The Day Camp Counselor is (usually) responsible for planning, leading, and implementing core and non-core programs and experiences for children in a small group setting.

As a Junior Camp Counselor, you will interact with campers, help with activities and serve as leaders in camp spirit and motivation. As the Camp Counselors’ right-hand-person, you can assist the Counselors, lead kitchen duties and help as necessary.

You should be athletically inclined, willing to work outside in all types of weather, ready to assist with setting up the stage, building props, extra tables, cleaning, etc.

Getting trained in pediatric first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and  automated external defibrillator (AED) is extremely important. Everyone working with kids and teenagers should be certified. And that’s why you need to take this hands-on training.

You will learn first aid skills in situations specific to children, cardiopulmonary resuscitation technique, using a defibrillator, and how to help a child or infant who is chocking. Adult CPR is included at no charge, if desired.

Free Instructor’s DVD (a $165.00 value) – At the end of the successful training, you will receive a free copy of the Instructor’s DVD with the same video segments used in class, plus a workbook, and a First Aid Certificate valid three (3) years, together with a CPR/AED Certificate valid two (2) years from training.

Additionally, a second workbook is used (and you will take it home) to learn about common minor childhood problems and injuries, child abuse and neglect, common childhood illnesses and how to prevent them, and making places safe for children.

The seats are limited (we keep classes small for a better instruction).  Write down the address, date and time, and register today.

Save Each Life uses the National Safety Council (NSC) training materials. Of the three nationally accredited CPR training companies (American Heart Association, American Red Cross and National Safety Council), NSC is the only company who provides each participant with a workbook and a DVD with the same video used at training, so that each participant could watch again and again, at their convenience, the training.

Each participant is also encouraged to watch the DVD with family and friends, grandparents and babysitters, to help educate everyone on the safe practices and technique to save each life.  Additionally, the NSC First Aid Certificate is valid three (3) years – as opposed to competitors’ two (2) years.
