Join the Waubuno Junior Guard program in 2021!  This volunteer program, available to youth age 12-18, offers participants the chance to earn volunteer hours and gain valuable work experience as well as practical skills that can be applied in future employment.  No experience is necessary.

For more information on the program or to register, call Waubuno Beach at 705-774-9779 after June 28.

2021 Swim Program Update

Due to the uncertainty of public health restrictions and their implications, the Town of Parry Sound will not be offering swimming lessons at Waubuno Beach in 2021.  Waubuno Beach will continue to be supervised by lifeguards from the hours of 10 AM until 6 PM for the months of July and August.

Staff are working hard with the goal of once again delivering a Red Cross Swim Program for all ages and abilities in 2022.  We look forward to seeing you next year!
