About

Bronze Camp is not only the perfect way to become a fully qualified Surf Life Saver, but it's also a great way to meet new friends. The week long live-in camp held in December is a fun, challenging way to experience an introduction to Surf Life Saving. It is open for applicants aged 15 years and over and is instructed by fellow Lorne Surf lifesavers and members.

At the completion of the camp candidates are expected to attend a minimum of 5 - 6 rostered patrols, the annual Door Knock appeal and Mountain to Surf and Pier to Pub as helpers. The camp will be holding a ‘first in best dressed’ approach to applications this year, and will hold special consideration to those previously involved in the nippers or cadet programs.

Dates: December 10th - 17th, 2016 (Saturday to Saturday)

Attention: Candidates must attend all days to achieve their Bronze Medallion.
