Cape Cod National Seashore will once again offer its Junior Lifeguard Program for boys and girls ages 13 to 17 this summer. The purpose of the program is to promote water safety and provide job-specific training on Cape Cod by reaching out to area youth. Past junior lifeguards currently work as ocean lifeguards for the Seashore and several towns on Cape Cod.

Participants in the Junior Lifeguard Program will be instructed by National Park Service lifeguards in CPR/AED, first aid, and lifeguard training. Approximately 18 applicants will be selected to join the program. Those participants who will be 15 years old or older before the end of the program and who satisfactorily complete all requirements will receive American Red Cross certifications in the training areas. In addition, participants will be trained in ocean lifeguard operations.

The program begins on Thursday, July 5, and runs through Thursday, Aug. 9. Participants meet at Marconi Beach on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday each week, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Participation is free, but contingent upon satisfactory completion of a 1/3 mile open ocean swim followed immediately by a 1/2 mile run at Marconi Beach on the first day of the program. Water temperatures at Marconi Beach are usually near 55 degrees in early July, and the use of wetsuits will not be allowed for the initial swim-run.

Nauset Sea Scout Ship 72 (ages 14-20) and Nauset Explorer Club 72 (ages 11-13) are planning an open house Sunday, May 20, 1 to 4 p.m., to introduce high school and middle school youth, parents and the public to the year round opportunities that exist within these groups.

Members of these two groups get hands-on boating and water safety skills, and build life skills, while exploring local marine resources and maritime career opportunities. Several of the organization’s vessels will be on display at the open house, including two historic 26’ Race Point surf rescue pulling boats, a Herreshoff America 18’catboat and a 26’ O’Day sloop. Scouts and leaders will provide hands-on activities such as navigating, knot tying, and oar handling during the event.
