The aim of our program is to provide a safe place where participants can be instructed in a variety of skills pertaining to the lifeguarding profession and the aquatic environment. Instructors will introduce participants to basic CPR skills, First Aid, rescue techniques, and lifeguarding procedures. We also include an interpretive component that provides information about the ocean habitats and local ecosystems.

Unique to Twin Lakes:
