Junior Guard Summer Camp at Spring Lake

Junior Guard camp at Spring Lake offers kids fun, exercise, and a skill they can use!

Summer Camps in RIncon Valley
All camps are staffed by trained Sonoma County Parks Lifeguards

Sonoma County Regional Parks offers 3 types of Junior Guard camps for kids 9-16 interested in learning lifeguard skills in a fun, interactive way.  
The 3 camps are:

Rincon Valley
Kids practice using a rescue tube

  • Lifeguard camp at Spring Lake
  • Kayaking on the Russian River
  • Surf Camp at Doran Beach

Although it's not clear in the titles, all 3 camps emphasize lifeguard skills, each in a unique setting.  Even if your child is not interested in becoming a lifeguard, the camps are full of fun, activities, competitions, in a safe, wet environment.  
Skills taught include:

Surfboards lined up as campers to get their wetsuits on

  • Swimming
  • Paddleboard skills
  • Boating safety
  • First Aid
  • CPR
  • General guard duties

My 2 boys have been a part of Junior Guard camp for years and love it!  Both went on to be Lifeguards In Training (LGIT) which is for older kids who have already attended the camps.  LGITs help the counselors run the camps.
