Keely White, 10, jumps off the diving board and will be “saved” by Julian Harrison, 10, during a session Thursday at Aqua Camp at Liberty Park Pool. Lifeguard Rachel Howieson said the session teaches the children how lifeguards help someone who is drowning and allows them to understand how they can recognize when someone is in distress.
