Treasure Coast Junior Lifeguards Mission
Water safety awareness is paramount to all who enjoy spending time on the water. Starting with our youth, this training and education platform teaches kids how to identify hazards and to make risk assessments in the marine environment. The Treasure Coast Junior Lifeguard summer camps work toward creating a foundation to fulfill the need for water safety in the community. The motto is “more prevention means fewer rescues.” The knowledge gained in these programs minimizes the risk and maximizes the enjoyment of swimming, bodysurfing, bodyboarding, surfing and stand-up paddleboarding. Join us this summer to be involved with the shared values of the Junior Lifeguards and contribute to the vision of a safer future community.

With professional lifeguards as instructors, these (mostly summer) programs teach water safety, first aid techniques, build self-confidence and help prepare interested youths for work as lifeguards. Participants learn about beach safety in a fun and challenging atmosphere.
