Junior Lifeguard Camp

Girl at Junior Lifeguard Camp

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Jacksonville Beach Junior Lifeguard Camp will be postponed until the 2023 season. Thank you for understanding.

The Junior Lifeguard program is a one-week, full-day camp for kids 9 to 15, and is sponsored by the City of Jacksonville Beach and the American Red Cross Volunteer Life Saving Corp. For further information contact Coach Paugh at 904-860-2175 or the Lifeguard Station at 904-249-9141.

Because the camp is held at the lifeguard station, the students can view how professional lifeguards handle beach emergencies and day-to-day operations.

The program provides participants with the skills required to apply for employment as a lifeguard when they are 16 years old. Many of our lifeguards have pursued careers as firefighters, police officers, military personnel, doctors, and nurses.
