Learn about being an entrepreneur, develop people skills and build confidence as an empowered Babysitter!

In partnership with the nationally recognized babysitting course, “Smart Kids: Babysitting 101”, boys and girls ages 10-14 can participate in this two day camp that will give each babysitter hands on training with the children in our childcare center, which makes our babysitter training camp a unique experience, unlike any other! Plus, they’ll learn about keeping children safe, which toys and foods are appropriate for the different age groups, diapering babies and so much more! All campers will receive infant and child CPR and first aid skills and will take home a portable first aid kit along with other goodies! (This camp does not CPR certify anyone, we just teach the basics)

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact our youth program options; EmBe is striving to innovate and think outside of the box.  We are excited to offer you a virtual Babysitting Camp option.

Virtual Babysitting Camp will include all of the same amazing experiences as if your child was sitting in our classroom.  Our partnership with the nationally recognized babysitting course, “Smart Kids: Babysitting 101”, will continue to give each babysitter the knowledge they need to become the best babysitter on their block.  They will also learn through videos from our childcare staff on topics like keeping children safe, which toys and foods are appropriate for different age groups, feeding babies and so much more! All campers will receive infant and child CPR and first aid skills taught by our certified staff. (This camp does not CPR certify anyone, we just teach the basics)

This virtual camp option will be held over 4 days’ time ending with a live Zoom where all participants will have an opportunity to participate in a Q and A session.  Each day will be about an hour long and will cover new topics and activities.  After registering you will receive a Babysitting Camp packet.  This packet will include everything you will need to successfully complete our virtual camp.  Items will include your Babysitting 101 workbook, a tote bag, camp t-shirt, colored pencils, fabric markers, first aid kit, an EmBe open swim pool punch card* and an additional resource packet filled with coloring sheets, easy recipes and crafts.

*The open swim punch card is only available for those participating in the virtual babysitting camp, as this was to replace the swim time that we can offer during in-person camp.
