Lifesaving skills demonstrated at Boys & Girls Club

LAWRENCE – Lawrence Police School Resource Officer Jonathan Armano and Lawrence Police Detective Marco Ayala demonstrated lifesaving skills and equipment during a water safety presentation on the first day of ZAC Camp at the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence yesterday,

Sponsored by The ZAC Foundation, the free camp provides more than 100 local 6- to 9-year-olds with swimming classes, classroom curriculum, and other hands-on activities from April 22-25.

The ZAC Foundation was established in 2008 by Brian and Karen Cohn after the loss of their 6-year-old son, Zachary Archer Cohn, in a pool drain entrapment in their backyard swimming pool.

ZAC Camp is part of a national partnership initiative undertaken by The ZAC Foundation and Boys & Girls Clubs of America to bring lifesaving water safety skills to more than 2,500 kids from 25 Clubs across the country. BGCL was selected through a rigorous application process due to its commitment to advancing water safety locally.

Through education and advocacy, the Foundation is dedicated to preparing children and their families for a lifetime of water safety. To learn more about The ZAC Foundation, connect with us on Facebook and thezacfoundation.com.
