Yeah. That's what I've spent the past five days doing. Two more days to go. When I finish, I may possibly be certified in everything the Red Cross offers (including the official Red Cross Babysitting Course --- I took that when I was probably eleven years old. Don't be jealous.)
Basically, I can safely suspend you in the air while attached to a rope. But in the event that I drop you and you have bones protruding from your limbs and excessive bleeding, I can then save your life.
Or so we hope.
(Dragon's Tail: the newest element on our high ropes course---especially new to me since I didn't work at camp last summer! It swings back & forth as you try to climb to the top.)
