Junior Lifeguards 2021



Lake Perris State Recreation Area Jr. Lifeguard Program (July 12-23, 2021)   (We still having some spaces left!) 

The mission of the Lake Perris Junior Lifeguard Program is to provide quality water safety and environmental education to children ages 8-15. The Junior Lifeguard Program introduces young people to safe aquatic recreational opportunities. The program is designed to improve physical condition and gain a greater understanding and respect for the environment, themselves, their parents and peers. This mission is accomplished through activities that include: team building, open water swimming, beach running, paddle boarding, hiking, kayaking, first aid / CPR training, aquatic rescue techniques all while having FUN! 

Participants must be able to swim 100 yards without stopping and tread water for five minutes.  This program does not teach swimming.  It is for competent swimmers to enhance their aquatic skills and learn the fundamentals of lifeguarding.
