The 2019 Bronze and SRC Camp Our summer Bronze Camp will from the 6th-12th Jan. This year we won't have a building so live in accommodation will not be available. All families with someone eligible to do their Bronze/SRC this season have been sent an email with an expression of interest form to fill. Members are asked to make the necessary arrangements for accommodation as required. If you haven't got an email please let email Dean at email@example.com
Bronze camp is an opportunity for new and old members to gain their Surf Rescue Certificate or Bronze Medallion which allows holders to become Life Savers on beaches throughout Australia. During Bronze Camp participants learn a variety of surf, first aid, resuscitation & rescue skills. Working out of containers this season it will be different but the program will be going ahead.
Pre-requisites 13+ for the Surf Rescue Certificate and be able to swim 200m in 5 minutes in a pool. 15+ for the Bronze Medallion and be able to swim 400m in 9 minutes in a pool. The Bronze medallion is a live in camp, where candidates will participate in training all day and sleep in the club bunk rooms at night. It is not a requirement to stay at the club but most Bronzies enjoy staying at the clubhouse as it’s a good chance to get to know other members of the club.
SRC’s are usually younger and only are required from 9am til 6pm each day. They are requested to stay at home unless there are other circumstances that make it more convenient for them to stay at the club.
This season we are also including the Advanced resuscitation award for the Bronze candidates.
