Junior Lifeguards


Santa Barbara Junior Lifeguards is a world famous, nationally affiliated, disciplined training program held at East Beach for over 50 years. Our instructors hold Red Cross CPR/Open Water Lifeguard Certifications and lead the Junior Lifeguards through games, skills, competitions, and more.

Junior Lifeguards 2-Week Session
The two-week session is the highlight of Junior Lifeguards, a focused, intensive program designed to take campers from solid swimmers to legendary lifesavers. Designed to make your camper into a well-rounded individual, Junior Lifeguards learn first aid, ocean safety, and marine awareness, as well as participate in competitions, form lasting bonds, and more. Attendance is necessary, as every day counts! 

Junior Lifeguards 8-Week Session
The eight-week session lasts all four sessions of Junior Lifeguards, designed to provide a flexible and affordable option for families with multiple commitments throughout the summer. This option is perfect for Junior Lifeguards with the desire to develop alongside their peers and instructors, helping them to form strong bonds, participate in multiple competitions, learn first aid and ocean safety, and more. 

The Junior Lifeguards program provides the Pre-Camp option for families who prefer the drop-off time of 9:00 AM. With the extra 1.5 hours, campers will warm up, play beach games, and prepare for the day ahead. Pre-requisites: Registration in a session of 2024 Junior Lifeguards.
