Alex Brantz and Anton Klekar on patrol and members of the Rainbow Beach Surf Club
This month the Rainbow Beach Surf Club will be holding a Surf Life Saving Bronze/SRC ‘live in’ training camp at the RBSLSC Clubhouse.
The aim of the camp is to provide an intensive, structured and fun training program that will allow participants to gain various surf lifesaving and nationally recognised awards. It allows young people to be a member of a community organisation and participate in community service.
This is a live-in camp which means for seven days you will sleep in dormitory accommodation at the clubhouse and all meals are included.
Awards available from this camp are the Bronze Medallion for 15 years and older; the Certificate 11 in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue) and the Surf Rescue Certificate for 13 years and older.
There will be adult supervision at all times along with experienced junior helpers. The young people will be given time to go to the shops provided they stay in small groups and a clear curfew will be in place and a high standard of behaviour required.
The camp commences at 8.30am on Sunday January 12 and runs until Saturday January 18.
The cost of the Bronze camp is $250 which includes training manual, certificate 11 workbook, togs, hi-visibility rash shirt and full patrol uniform, plus food and accommodation.
All participants should be registered and fees paid by January 10.
