2020 Pismo Beach Junior Lifeguard Program
Due to the COVID-19 virus, order from the County and State, and ultimately the risk to our employees, Junior Lifeguard participants, and the general public, the City of Pismo Beach has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Junior Lifeguard Program.

A modified Program was considered, however, the City felt the risk was still too great to proceed. We know how disappointed you may be, but we know this is the right thing to do at this time.

We look forward to putting together an amazing 2021 Junior Lifeguard Program for returning and new participants.
