Interested in becoming a lifeguard or swim instructor this summer?

Join our Lifeguard and Swim Instructor Hiring Event in North Bethesda, MD and meet ESF’s Aquatics Director, Debbie Connors and Site Director, Darren Matthews!

We are currently looking to hire twenty-five (25) Lifeguards at our camps located in North Bethesda and Baltimore, Maryland. Attend our event to learn more about these exciting opportunities (earn money while obtaining course credit or fulfilling field work hours!) and how we can help you have the BEST summer ever with ESF Camps!

ESF is hiring motivated leaders and strong swimmers with prior experience supervising children who believe in ESF’s mission, build positive relationships and ensure the well-being of others. Candidates must be capable of teaching swimming and a minimum of sixteen (16) years of age.

Not Certified? That’s okay! ESF will reimburse Lifeguards/Swim Instructors after a successful camp season for completing and passing a local or ESF-run lifeguard certification class!

ESF Swim Instructors are not required to have a Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certification to teach swim lessons. If hired, Aquatic Team members are trained on ESF’s swimming levels prior to the start of camp. If you have your WSI certification additional compensation is offered.
