Junior Lifeguard Essentials Summer Camp


Have a budding beach babe on your hands? The sun and sand can be wonderful and fun - but as any mom knows, safety must always comes first.

Your lifeguards-in-training can transition from the Back Bay Summer Camp to Junior Guards with the new Essentials Junior Guard program! Essentials Junior Guards is a one-week program that exposes 8-17 year olds with basic ocean swimming skills to the Junior Guard experience in a less demanding format that allows for more "fun" time. The program is lead by certified Junior Lifeguard instructors, providing introductory training in ocean safety, physical fitness, health and nutrition, environmental awareness, swimming skills and first-aid. The program runs from 9am to 3pm, Monday through Friday, so they'll get educated, sun-kissed, and waves of fun!
