Are there lifeguards on duty when the campers are swimming?
Yes. We hire multiple summer staff who are Lifeguarding/First Aid/CPR/AED certified and campers are not allowed on the waterfront unless at least one certified lifeguard is present. Per Michigan licensure, in a given swim area the swimmer to lifeguard ratio will never exceed 25:1, however at Higher Ground at Lake Louise that ratio is often closer to 15:1 and additionally includes adults present as aquatic observers. The swim area has clear water and the ground can be seen at the swim area’s maximum depth of 12 feet.
