Registration opened April 1, and we sold out in record time. Unfortunately, we do not have a waitlist, but encourage families to check periodically to see if any spots became available. Due to Covid-19 we have eliminated our beach competition and field trips for this coming summer. Information is changing frequently on requirements/recommendations by public health officials for camps. We will be following County Health protocols for social distancing and masking for outdoor activities. We are dedicated to providing a high level of beach instruction that promotes a safe and active lifestyle. We are so excited to be back on the beach with our Junior guard family
