Hello Junior Lifeguards, parents, and friends

Welcome, past, present and future Junior Lifeguards!!! With 2018 succesfuly in the books, we're busy working on planning for our 2019 season.  Although nothing is finalized yet, we've spent a good deal of time reviewing end of season surveys to bring forward changes we hope are positive.

You can see that there's something for everyone!

BSA Merit Badges

Are you a Boy Scout? If so, you are now able to potentially complete various required skills from three merit badges when attending any JG session. 

Interested? Be sure to bring a Boy Scout buddy and your blue card(s) to be marked off at the end of the session. Notify your JG Instructor at the beginning of the session which merit badge skills you hope to be checked off on during the week. On Friday, the JG Instructor will fill-out the blue card, indicating which skills were successfully completed. IMPORTANT: It is not guaranteed that a Boy Scout will successfully complete each skill or completely earn any of the merit badges.

The following merit badges are offered every session:

First Aid
- Required skills offered: 2b+c, 3a-c, 4a+b, 6a+b, 7

- Required skills offered: 7a+b, 9c, 13a+b, 14a

- Required skills offered: 2a+b


Red Cross Certification

Since 2010, Junior Lifeguard participants were provided the option to receive American Red Cross (ARC) certifications in First Aid or CPR/AED depending on the session. The skills of each certification are built into each session. There is no written test.

Pre-registration (by phone or on-line only) Cost: $20

First Aid offered during:
Sessions 1, 3, 5, 7

CPR/AED offered during:
Sessions 2, 4, 6, 8

The optional ARC certification must be purchased during registration only.  No on site purchase will be allowed.  JGs who have signed up to receive a certification from ARC will be given a temporary card on Friday. A certificate copy will be mailed home in September.

NOTE: Every JG receives a certificate of program completion—
this is NOT the same as the ARC certification card. To be certified by the ARC, parents must pay the additional $20 fee.
