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.
