Aquatics Policies

A Word to Parents: Our lifeguards are highly skilled and it is their job to make our facilities as safe as possible. They are not, however, babysitters. Parents are required to watch their children and to assist in enforcing the policies for the safety and enjoyment of all patrons. All children under 12 must be supervised by an adult.

We want you on our Aquatics Team!

There are many options for summer jobs but none as rewarding s being a lifeguard at Cape Splash! We have training available to certify you as a lifeguard as well as a Water Park Certification. If you are already certified we are always looking for quality, certified staff like yourself to be a part of our team!
