Every summer, a group of students from Utrecht go to the island of Texel to train as life guards. Their instructors are former students themselves; the school is a cabin on the beach. The training is playful and makes use of a self-invented language, but is also no-nonsense. The pupils are immediately put to work. A unique sample of self-regulation in the Netherlands, for the protection of summer fun. Made within the scope of Teledoc Campus.
