Activities: Jr. Lifeguard Program
Atlantic Beach is excited to offer a Junior Lifeguard program to our citizens and visitors. There will be four different sessions held for 2017.
Registration forms will be available at Town Hall, starting March 1st at 8AM. Each registration form should have its own payment (cash or check only). If paying for multiple children, each child will need to be registered and paid separately. Spaces per session are first come, first serve – no reservations. Parents/guardians may wish come prior to 8AM on March 1st and get in line outside of the Town Hall front door as sessions tend to fill up quickly. Parents/guardians should know their session preference when they arrive to assist in the registration process. We will post the registration form online in early March when the consistent walk-ins slow down.
For planning purposes, the dates for each session are below.
SESSION 1, June 12 – June 16 (Ages 9-12)
SESSION 2, June 26 – June 30 (Ages 9-12)
SESSION 3, July 10 – July 14 (Ages 13-17)
SESSION 4, July 24 – July 28 (Ages 13-17)
