The Little Turtle Program is a PRE (non competitive) Junior Lifeguard Program focusing on introducing children to the beach and ocean environment. The primary objective is to make the child’s experience on the beach as fun and as educational as possible - providing younger children with the knowledge and confidence to one day become a Junior Lifeguard.
LT Surf Xtravaganza (ages 7 & 8)
LT Surf Xtravaganza is open to Little Turtle Participants currently registered in the corresponding LT session who want more time to Dig in the sand, build sand castles, tunnels and holes! Favorite past times of Little Turtles at the beach ☺
Supervised Boogie board/surf time will be offered. A qualified adult professional DMJG Staff member will oversee the LT Surf Xtravaganza and the DMJG lifeguard will supervise the safety of all activities on the beach and water time offered. Little Turtle uniform must be worn at all times during this session for sun protection and safety and easy recognition. Pick up will be in the regular “DMJG cone zone” pick up area on Camino del mar.
We offer several programs that we hope will fit your schedule. You can register online, or by mail. To secure the session that you want we recommend registering online. Session fill up fast, and are provided on a first come first served basis. All online registrations are processed in real time.
Your Little Turtle must be 7 years old on or before the last day of the session you wish to enroll in.
