County Launching New Hendry’s Junior Lifeguards Program for Summer

The Santa Barbara County Community Services Department is excited to be launching a new recreational youth program for kids ages 8 to 17. This will be a fun and educational Junior Lifeguard Program at Arroyo Burro Beach County Park, aka Hendry’s Beach.

Hendry’s Junior Lifeguards will learn the skills required to be a beach lifeguard. Our program is designed to emphasize the importance of safety, respect and camaraderie while improving the junior lifeguards’ physical conditioning. In addition, junior lifeguards will learn about marine ecology and the ocean environment.

We’ve been working to develop this program with the help of Al Fimlaid, who has been a lifeguard for the past 36 years and has supervised several other junior lifeguard programs. Hendry’s Junior Lifeguard instructors are all certified Santa Barbara County lifeguards.


The program runs from 10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Session 1: July 1-19 (three weeks)
Session 2: July 22-Aug. 9 (three weeks)


Each single three-week session is $285 ($245 each additional sibling). Enrollment will be limited so sign up now!


All new students must attend one of the tryout dates to participate in the program. Tryouts will be held at the UCSB Campus Pool at 552 University Road in Santa Barbara from 6 to 7 p.m. May 6, May 28 and June 10. Parking Lot 27 off El Colegio and Ocean Road is the recommended parking lot. Hope to see you there!

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
