The city of Carpinteria is preparing to hold its youth summer programs with modifications to reduce the risk of Covid-19. The Junior Lifeguard program will take place June 21 through Aug. 6 on weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Face coverings will be required. Last summer the program operated with multiple sessions, but this summer, the Parks and Recreation Department is planning a single session capped at 150 participants. Sign-ups will begin on May 1, and more information will be forthcoming.
Swim lessons at the Community Pool will open on April 1. Registration for lessons will take place at the pool, 5305 Carpinteria Ave., starting Monday, March 22. There are limited spaces for lessons, and requests will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis.
