Lifejackets and swim lessons should not be a
luxury for only those who can afford them!

Ask us how to get a station on a lake near you!

In honor of our beautiful, high-spirited granddaughter, Carissa Jo Babcock, “Scooter” who died at 9 years old, while swimming in a river with four adults. None of them put a life jacket on her. Her death and all drownings are 100% preventable! Drowning is the #1 accidental cause of death of children ages 5 and under.

Scooters-waters.com is working to spread the word about swimming safely in natural bodies of water. Our goal is to lower drowning statistics by raising awareness and education. We also strive to assist with tools needed such as life jackets and sponsoring swim lessons for those who cannot afford them. Drowning is a silent killer and an eternal tragedy.
