Sandwich Beach Update:
We are not staffing the beach with lifeguards this summer.  We have instead hired beach attendants to work at the beach and enforce the rules.  This means the beach is always swim at your own risk.  Our staff is still tasked with providing a safe and enjoyable facility for all to use, and the rules of the facility remain the same as they have been in the past.  The safety of swimmers in the water will be the responsibility of the swimmer. Our beach attendants will be assisting with our swim program weekday mornings during the first three weeks of July.  Beach Attendants will begin Saturday, July 2.

We are also confronted by scheduling issues for our staff members, so the beach may not always be staffed 9am-5pm, as it has been in the past.  We are hoping for complete coverage, but as of now schedule and staff constraints means the beach may be un-staffed during the hours of 9am-5pm.  We are still looking for qualified applicants to work at the beach (must be 16 years or older).  We will do our best provide coverage as much as possible.  Please reach out with any questions. 

Sandwich Parks and Recreation is now hiring for Beach Attendants positions.  We staff our town beach at Squam lake from the end of June until mid-August. 
Job description and employment application are attached at bottom of page.  We prefer applicants be Red Cross Lifeguard certified before the start of employment. Applicants for lifeguard position must be at least sixteen (16) years of age at the start of employment.  Applicants for beach attendant position must be at least fifteen (15) years of age at the start of employment.  
Please reach out if you have any questions.
