Every Summer the Club's Training and Assessment Area lead by Chief Instructor Lachlan Andrews conduct a Bronze Camp (Bronzies) for members who must be aged at least 15 years to gain their Bronze Medallion - Certificate II Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue) and a Cadet Camp (Cadets) for members who must be aged at least 13 years to gain their Surf Rescue Certificate.
Members gaining these awards then participate in Surf Lifesaving Patrols of the Seaspray Beach on a voluntary basis. It is a requirement that members who gain their Bronze or Surf Rescue Certificate participate in regular rostered patrols - this is not an optional component of Active membership of the Club. Along with Camp fees, Membership is payable by all participants.
This Season the groups will run simultaneously but cater for the needs of the respective age groups and a major focus of the new program is investing for our future. The timing will allow for 100% of Club resources to be dedicated to the program without conflict from other Club activities and events.
Note we do not and cannot offer any 'special' or 'one off' assessments for candidates who do not meet the minimum age requirement on assessment day, even if this may result in having to wait almost 12 months for the next course.
