What is the Lifesaving Development Camp?

In 2018, Surf Life Saving Tasmania will run it’s fifth Lifesaving Development Camp for surf life savers aged 16-21. The camp is a 7-day live in program to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills of young people to the next level. Whilst at the same time preparing them to take on more responsibility in their patrol teams, their own clubs and the wider community. This is achieved by providing the young people who attend the Lifesaving Development Camp with a higher level of award training, and exposure to exciting, fast-paced simulated lifesaving scenarios. Camp attendees will use the standard patrolling equipment to manage “No Notice” scenarios that become more complex as their skills develop.
