North Tahoe Junior Lifeguards

The Junior Lifeguard program’s goal is to educate the community’s youth about aquatic safety and high quality outdoor recreation. Through extensive aquatic interaction, exploration, and recreation, the Junior Guards gain a well-rounded education that can be utilized on and off the beach. After two weeks of training each Junior Guard will have a heightened awareness and knowledge of the lake and its dangerous, yet wonderful, environment.
