Home Beaches Beach Events

lifeguardsDuring a typical summer, different events or programs are held. Many of these were developed by the previous beach commissioner. Presently, in July, there is a highly popular lobster or beach bake whereby proceeds help fund certain beach initiatives (such as lifeguard equipment). This is a very popular event so early reservations are encouraged. In both July and August, Billabong runs a four day surf camp (typically before 10 am) for a wide age group. Additionally, in both months, a Saturday is devoted to the annual sand castle and boogie board contests (last year also included a hotly contested skim board contest), with "awards" being small gift certificates for ice cream at the Innlet. A Junior Lifeguard program has also been run over the last four summers for different age groups, culminating in a beach olympics (five of the participants have gone on to work as guards at local beaches). All of these events are on the Weekapaug master calendar and sign-up forms (if not available for download on this site) can be provided at the WFD Office.

Anyone interested in helping to organize (plan, set-up/break down, judge...) new or existing events are asked to contact one of the Beach Committee members. The help is appreciated!
