The Cape May Beach Patrol employs roughly 75 guards each year. Many guards began their careers as Junior Lifeguards, but all individuals over 16 years old are open to try out. The majority of our guards are returning guards, who must also re-qualify each year. For more information on new and returning lifeguards, please see each individual page from the menu. Additionally, if you have any other questions you can call Lifeguard Headquarters (609-884-9520) between 9AM – 5PM daily during the summer months.
