ts the importance of respecting themselves, others and the beach environment. This camp is also a great step for anyone who eventually want to become a Hilton Head Island Beach Patrol lifeguard with Shore Beach Service.

 

Days consist of team building activities, workouts, and educational classes. Class sessions--which all take place on the beach-- are geared towards informing kids of the various aspects of beach lifeguarding, first-aid, CPR, and marine wildlife. When they are not in class,  kids are be exposed to a wide range of physical activities. We train daily to demonstrate how lifeguards need to achieve physical fitness to accomplish ocean front duties. Team building activities will be lifeguarding related games that are geared to educate and have fun at the same time.

Parent Testimonials

“Best. Camp. Ever. Living at the beach, our kids can't know enough about water safety.  This camp is a fantastic foundation for all local kids, Shore Beach Service made it fun and interesting and we can't wait to do it again!”-Lori Lucas


 
 "The Junior Lifeguard camp was a great combination of education, fitness and fun! The camp was extremely well-organized and provided lots of great safety information in a fun environment. The lifeguard counselors were dynamic and professional, and made sure the kids loved every minute of it! We highly recommend it!"-Elise Simons 

 

  "I signed my two middle school boys up for the camp without consulting them first.  They didn’t really want to go but promised me they’d try it and have a positive attitude.  Both came home from camp and loved it! Each of them said it was the best part of their day and each day they came home, they said that day was better than the day before.   Kevin, Hannah and Taylor were fantastic.  The camp was very well organized and not only was it fun, but educational as well.  Thank you for a great week!" -Christina Galbreath-Gonzalez

Junior Lifeguard Competition

In August, we gathered kids from each session of camp for our 2nd Annual Junior Lifeguard Competition.  21 kids came to compete.  We divided the kids into 4 groups:  girls 10 & under, boys 10 & under, girls 11 & over, and boys 11 & over.   The events were a Surf Swim, a 1K Run, 100 Meter Dash, and Beach Flags.  Each junior guard had the option to sit out 1 event.  Our staff who ran the camp-Hannah Quast, Taylor Smith and Kevin Murphy- each drafted kids for their team to make it and individual and teaSwim Startm event.

 

The seas were rough for the swim, but most of the kids still opted to do it.  The competitiors swam out to a buoy about 50 yards out, accross 100 yards, and back in 50 yards.  All of the junior guards handled the conditions like pros! Kendal was our girls 10 & under winner, Jonas Pisarchick took first for the boys 10 & under, Izzy Pozos was the girls 11 & over winner, and Bill Fielding grabbed first for the boys 11 & over.

 

The Junior Guards gathered themselves to take off for the 1K Run, which was made tougher due to high tides. Alex Coley raced to victory for the 10 & under girls, Jonas Pisarchick grabbed his second victory in two events, Izzy Pozos folllowed Scout's lead, snagging her second victory of the competition, and Alex Ruckno sped to a victory for the 11 & over boys.

 

After the first two events, the kids were tired, but they regrouped for the 100 Meter Dash.  Kendal Wagner and Alex Ruckno sangged their second wins in the race for their age groups, while Izzy Pozos and Jonas Pisarchick wrapped up their third wins of the evening. 2k start

 

The fnal event of the night was Beach Flags, which the kids were psyched to do!  The junior guards were just as competitive as our regular lifeguards, sand flying everywhere as they dove for the flags!  When the dust settled, Alex Coley was the girls 10 & under Beach Flag queen, while Izzy Poxzos beat Edy Ann McGoldrick, dominating all girls 11 & over events.  For the boys, Laird Kennedy finsihed ahead of most of the 11 & older boys to grabr the 10 & under crown, while Hayden Bird out-huslted Alex Ruckno for the victory.

When all the points were added, our Overall Champs were Alex Coley for the girls 10 & under,, Jonas Pisarchic for the boys 10 & under, Izzy Pozos for the girls 11 & older, and Hayden Bird for the boys 11 & older.  Those fours winner along with several of the other kids competed in all four events!
