The Huntington Beach Junior Lifeguard program is hailed as one of the finest Junior Guard programs in the world. It’s mission is to ‘acquaint the youth of our community with the experience of ocean swimming and it’s hazards, while exposing them to an environment that will teach them courtesty, respect, discipline, sound morals, and good sportsmanship.’
The eight week program resumes every summer for children 9-17 and promotes it’s mission through training its participants in lifeguard training, proper bodysurfing, basic first aid, and competition with other junior lifeguard programs.
This year’s program will run Monday through Friday, June 21 through August 12, and is typically broken into a morning and afternoon session (8:30am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:30pm).
