These teenagers aren't spending their summer lounging around. They're spending their days leaping on and off a moving boat!
These are the mail boat jumpers of Lake Geneva! The beautiful Wisconsin lake is a favorite summer destination for Midwesterners, and the many houses that line the lake need to get mail delivered somehow... So that's where these teens come in for the craziest summer job ever!
Rain or shine won’t keep these mail jumpers from their appointed rounds. Each year a bunch of high school seniors try out as mail jumpers: the challenge is to dash to the mailbox and race back to the boat before it pulls away. The boat slows down but never stops so you have to be quick.
In order to get a job, tryouts are required and each employee must wear a life vest.
