Welcome Beach Kids

Just for 6 - 7 & 8 year-olds!

In this non-competitive beach program, the emphasis is on learning and fun.  The program teaches beach safety and awareness, basic first aid, marine life awareness, water etiquette, teamwork and introduction body boarding.  Beach Kids will emphasize confidence building and self esteem while playing games in a fun, beach environment.

Dear Encinitas Beach Kids Participants,

To help protect the health and safety of the public, staff, and Beach Kids participants, the City of Encinitas is regretfully cancelling all sessions of the 2020 Beach Kids Program.

The County of San Diego Health Order requires that all camps follow a  four-pillar approach that includes screening, sanitation, face covering, and social distancing. While we fully support these policies and other health protocols, the challenges and cost associated with implementing these four pillars would make it virtually impossible to run our program as we have in the past.

This is  consistent with actions by most other San Diego County, Orange County  and Southern California agencies concerning their Junior Lifeguard and associated programs. The City of Encinitas looks forward to offering the Beach Kids program next summer in 2021.

Those families who  have already registered their children for the program will receive a  full refund within the next several weeks. We understand the impact that this decision will have on our Beach Kids families, and our hope is that everyone will understand that this decision is being made out of an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of the  many young people who spend their summers at the Encinitas Beaches.

We’ll miss the fun, learning, and of course the memories that we always make each year. Our staff can’t wait to return for another summer in 2021. We hope you all have a safe and wonderful summer.
