Hendry’s Junior Lifeguards New Program for Summer 2013!

The Santa Barbara County Community Services Department is excited to be launching a new recreational youth program for kids ages 8 to 17. This will be a fun and educational Junior Lifeguard Program at Arroyo Burro Beach County Park (aka Hendry's Beach)!

Hendry’s Junior Lifeguards will learn the skills required to be a Beach Lifeguard. Our program is designed to emphasize the importance of safety, respect, and camaraderie while improving your junior lifeguard’s physical conditioning. In addition, your Junior Lifeguard will learn about marine ecology and the ocean environment. We’ve been working to develop this program with the help of Al Fimlaid who’s been a lifeguard for the past 36 years and has supervised several other junior lifeguard programs. Hendry’s Junior Lifeguard Instructors are all certified Santa Barbara County Lifeguards.


The program runs from 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. Session 1: July 1 - July 19, 2013 (3 weeks)

Session 2: July 22 - August 9, 2013 (3 weeks)


Each single three week session is $285 ($245 each additional sibling) Enrollment will be limited so sign up now!


All new students must attend one of the tryout dates to participate in the program.

Tryouts will be held at the UCSB Campus Pool at 552 University Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93106 on Monday May 6, 6-7pm, Tuesday May 28, 6-7pm and Monday June 10, 6-7pm.

Parking Lot 27 off El Colegio and Ocean Road is the recommended parking lot. Hope to see you there!
