The California Junior Lifeguard Programs, in association with the Newport Dunes Resort and Marina, are proud to announce that we are in our eighth year of the Back Bay summer Camp program.
Designed with care, it provides our participants with a safe and well supervised introduction to the ocean environment. With a combination of aquatic and dry land activities, combined with a healthy dose of plain old "FUN" it is designed to help build physical endurance, and coordination as well as improve the participants overall confidence.
The Back-Bay summer camp has much to offer that sets it apart from other summer camps:
Central location, near Jamboree Road and Pacific Coast Highway in Newport Beach, is convenient to all of Orange County.
Supervision and instruction are provided by trained and certified professional rescue personnel from the California Junior Lifeguard Programs, a leader in youth aquatic safety instruction and education with more than 19 years experience. All instructors are well skilled in the training of participants of all ages. This camp is a good starting point for participants who are not yet ready to venture into the ocean environment or have not yet met the age or tryout requirements of other aquatic programs.
We offer a balanced program of physical conditioning and aquatic education in a less stressful environment.
WHAT IS THE BACK-BAY SUMMER CAMP?
The Back-Bay summer camp is a one week long day camp that provides the participant with an introduction to the ocean in a calm and sheltered environment with no waves.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF THE BACK-BAY SUMMER CAMP?
It is our goal that every participant leave our camp with the following:
An increased level of confidence in their abilities in the ocean environment.
A basic knowledge of ocean safety, health and nutrition, and first-aid.
