Guard Houston Junior Lifeguarding Camp for Ages 11–14

Since last season, we've helped youth gain critical aquatics safety knowledge with our pre-lifeguarding training program. The class runs six hours a day, completing a session in one week. That's five days of training, and upon completion the student will be presented their Guard Houston Junior Lifeguard Camp certificate of completion.

Providing education to this demographic allows us to incorporate the appropriate disciplines, skills, and focus into a curriculum that's presented in an environment removed from the pressure of real world job performance. When the person is of age to guard, they may present their training as good preparation to join the Guard Houston lifeguard staff.
