You’ll have fun training to be a lifesaver with your peers – and join a great bunch of people, from all walks of life and all ages who volunteer to keep us all safe on our beach
Come and join a Bronze/SRC camp during the school holidays.
The aim of these courses is to provide an intensive, structured, and fun training program for those interested in becoming an active member within the Rainbow Beach Surf Life Saving Club.
Participants will gain surf life saving and nationally recognised awards and allow them to become part of a valued community organisation.
An intensive ‘live in’ camp will be held from January 9-17. This includes: new electronic training manual, full patrol uniform, patrol cap, club togs, hi-vis safety rash shirt and graduation dinner plus all your food and accommodation for the week – for only $325.
If you would like to do the Bronze award externally, your online theory can be completed in your own time and we will run some practical sessions for you on the first two weekends of January.
You will also be able to join in on some camp sessions if you wish. This fee does not include club membership – $150.
All Bronze camp assessments will be on January 16 or 17, depending on conditions. A final dinner is being held at the RBSLSC Supporters Club on Saturday night where parents/family are welcome to attend.
If performing rescues in the surf is not for you – there are still many ways you can assist Rainbow Beach Surf Club. Volunteers are always welcomed in many roles, there is even a way you can join a patrol….
If anyone would like to obtain their Observers Award, you can attend the induction session on either January 2 or with the camp on January 9 and if confident can be assessed the same day.
It includes surf awareness and skills: identifying rips, different types of waves, patient recognition, communication: signals and beach management. The course supplements first aid and advanced resuscitation techniques.
Please note that all training is subject to Covid-19 restrictions and regulations and is subject to change at any time prior or during the course.
