Do you enjoy working children of all ages? Babysitting is a very important job in our community. This basic competency-based structured babysitting camp is designed to include a lot of interactive hands-on activities while you are learning how to respond to medical emergencies, preventing accidents, basic CPR and first aid, along with other safety issues. Campers are introduced to characteristics of various age groups, age-appropriate games, and playtime activities as well as basic caregiving routines (diapering, feeding, and bedtime). Learn professional skills on how to be marketable to potential parents, feel confident communicating with parents and guardians along with following their guidelines or instructions. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded the last day of camp.
