Our Dennis beach lifeguards make sure the summer season is fun for all by making our beaches safer.

To qualify for the Lifeguard Scholarship, applicants must have successful completion of the Lifeguard Training Certification Class, be 15 years of age at the start of the class, have strong swimming skills, a mature attitude and a Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School Student. Once you have taken the course, you are then eligible for tryouts to become a lifeguard and if you are hired by the Town of Dennis and/or Yarmouth, bring your receipt for the class to the Dennis Chamber of Commerce and you will be reimbursed in full from the “Holly Young” Lifeguard Scholarship Fund.  Holly Young died after a courageous three year battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. She was 22 years old, a 2004 Dennis Yarmouth Regional High School graduate and a Dennis Lifeguard. Below are the links to the Towns’ website when jobs are posted to become a lifeguard.
