Our program is designed to offer a secure environment for participants to learn essential skills related to lifeguarding and aquatic settings. Our experienced instructors cover fundamental CPR skills, First Aid, rescue techniques, and lifeguarding procedures. Additionally, our curriculum includes an interpretive component that educates participants about ocean habitats and local ecosystems.

Unique to Twin Lakes:

  • Smaller beach with dynamic beach and ocean conditions
  • Larger surf and more experience with rip currents
