The California State Junior Lifeguards Program is designed for children ages 8-15. We are dedicated to sharing beach and ocean safety information with participants. Our goal is to provide a program of physical fitness, first aid and CPR training, and exposure to ocean oriented sports and activities.
Our program is coordinated by actual California State Lifeguards who are trained in advanced first aid and rescue techniques and have many years of ocean rescue experience. Many instructors hold EMT certificates as well. In most cases they were Junior Lifeguards themselves! It is for this reason that you can be rest assured that your child is under the best of care while at San Clemente State Junior Lifeguards.
An emphasis on ocean safety and proper water etiquette will be stressed. Throughout daily workouts and free-time, Junior Lifeguards will increase their water safety skills and become more comfortable and confident in the ocean.

Updated 3/20/2020: In an effort to protect public health and the safety of visitors, volunteers and staff as the state responds to the continued threat of COVID-19 (coronavirus), California State Parks is postponing the Junior Lifeguard Program registration for summer programs until May and will reevaluate at that time. Participants who have already enrolled will not be dropped. If you have questions please reach out to the specific program for assistance.
The department is monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully and is committed to following the state’s efforts to help slow the spread of the pandemic disease.
We also remind everyone to practice social distancing and maintain at least six feet between other visitors and anyone who is coughing and sneezing.
