One of Recreation and Golf Services staple courses offered to young teens is Babysitter Training Camp. If you have a young teen, age 11-15, who enjoys caring for younger children – not to mention potentially earning some spending cash, then this may be the camp for them.
This four-hour program will train participants how to supervise, care for, and ensure the safety of infants and young children. Hands-on experience is gained by learning how to diaper babies and toddlers, how to recognize and respond in an emergency situation and how to respond to choking. In addition, a brief introduction to infant and child CPR will be provided. The skills being taught here are be beneficial to any young teen or adult!
Class is held in person at the Coronado Community Center. COVID-19 Safety Guidelines are followed, and because of this, separate training equipment is provided for each participant. Training is held Friday, Nov. 12 from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. The timing could not be better since Nov. 12 is a CUSD Holiday!
If your young teen is interested in caring for and mentoring younger children, starting a babysitting business is the perfect choice!
