Over the past 5 years we have had the best time teaching over 400 children survival skills in rivers, dams, creeks and pool environments.

Children are encouraged to wear the Downs Little Lifeguard rash shirt which can be purchased at a cost of $25 if not owned from previous program. Limited numbers. Enrolments close 17 February 2020. An adult must be present and be responsible for a child at all times. We encourage adults to participate with the children on land or in the water. Survival skills are for everyone!
