Beach Alert has returned at a new location! We are pleased to join Jericho Sailing Center as our new home for beach junior lifesaving.
BEACH ALERT JR LIFEGUARD CAMPS
Beach Alert Jr. Lifeguard Camps teach young lifesavers the skills they need to stay safe and respond to an aquatic emergency while focusing on on fun, fitness, first aid, water safety, and leadership.
For ages 8-15.*
The drills the camps use to introduce lifeguard skills include hand signals and other forms of communication, rescue drills, and the use of specialized equipment. The specialized equipment includes the use of paddleboards, kayaks, rescue cans and real life first aid supplies. Through relay races and simulated rescue, Beach Alert participants have fun as they learn.
The Beach Alert program is an excellent introduction to basic skills if your child is preparing for Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross and eventually working towards their National Lifeguard Award.
Courses run from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. weekday mornings, with one week session.
Pick up and drop off at Jericho Sailing Center, 1300 Discovery Street in Vancouver.
Cost for one week is $200 per child.
Participants must be able to swim at least two lengths of a normal-sized pool (50m) and tread water for at least one minute.
