The primary goal of the UC Santa Barbara Junior Lifeguards is to provide quality water safety education.
The program introduces young people to aquatic recreational opportunities through swimming and
general fitness, safety skills and related games. Additional goals include building self-esteem, respect for
others and respect for our natural environment.
Camp runs Monday through Friday from 8:30am-12:30pm.
Students are encouraged and expected to participate in all daily program activities. Each day activities will
