Shore Beach Service is excited about our Junior Lifeguard Program that began on Hilton Head Islandsummer of 2015!  Kids interested in learning about lifesaving skills and techniques should join us in 2017!


Our objective is to teach kids the value of water safety skills & physical fitness, while also educating them on various ocean conditions and marine wildlife found on Hilton Head Island. We provide a fun, safe place to grow, learn and build confidence while in the process teaching participants 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
