Refugio Junior Lifeguards
For more than 50 years, the Junior Lifeguard Program has emphasized teamwork, leadership and aquatic safety while introducing young people, ages 9 to 16, to safe marine and aquatic recreation opportunities. The program consists of day camps, usually lasting three to five weeks, that provide instruction in first aid, CPR, ocean safety, rescue techniques, surfing and bodyboarding. The State of California values programs such as this one, but it is critical during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect the junior lifeguards, their families and program instructors. State Parks will consult with public safety partners and health experts on how to move forward with the 2021 program.
For the most up-to-date information on how the department is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit www.parks.ca.gov/FlattenTheCurve.
The 2020 Junior Lifeguard Program has been cancelled as the state continues to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Participants that have signed up for the program are being notified and refunds will be provided automatically.
