Free Training and Certification

In order to ensure the safety of swimmers at any lifeguarding job, thorough training and certification is required. Carowinds is happy to provide all of our lifeguarding associates with these credentials at no cost, giving you valuable life-savings skills to be used for the rest of your life. Best of all, you even get paid to go through training.

Working Outside

Don’t spend your summer inside. As a Carolina Harbor lifeguard, you get to experience the great outdoors every day. Soak up some sun and enjoy the beautiful weather that accompanies a true Carolina summer.

Getting to Ride Waterslides and Get Paid For It

Each morning, lifeguards have to “test” 😉 our water slides. There’s also no better way to get up close and personal with the coolest slides around when you’re relieved from your shift at the top of a slide and need to take the fastest route down. Who else can say their summer job pays them to ride water slides?
