Junior Lifeguard Program Information
The North Lake Tahoe Junior Lifeguard program is a 2 week, introduction course designed to educate young individuals (ages 8-15) about aquatic safety and provide high quality outdoor recreation. Your JG will receive a well-rounded education that promotes teamwork, safety, and leadership as well as a heightened sense of awareness and knowledge about the alpine lakes environment. The program runs Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Kings Beach State Recreation Area. Email: Tahoe.email@example.com for more information.

** Registration is open for sessions 3 and 4 online at: www.reservecalifornia.com ** Past participants do not have to try out again. New participants please arrive an hour early to the first day of session 3 or 4 prepared to demonstrate your proficiency in swimming a 100 yard freestyle swim, a 10 yard submerged swim and 5 minute water tread.
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.
