DOW Westside YMCA
As part of the YMCA Teen Summer Camp program, teens from A.C. Lewis YMCA, Dow Westside YMCA, Southside YMCA and Paula G. Manship YMCA came together at the Williams & Lee Park pool in Port Allen to learn life-saving skills. During Rescuers R Us week at camp, 29 teens completed trainings to obtain certifications in CPR, First Aid, Oxygen/AED, Babysitting and Jr. Lifeguard. All 29 teens completed the certification and many of them plan to utilize these skills in the future as babysitters and YMCA lifeguards. The Y’s summer camp is designed to build character, support emotional, spiritual and physical well-being, and offer lifelong lessons to give children the opportunity to be the best they can be.
