Anglesea Bronze Camp
2017 BRONZE CAMP APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.
Outcomes will be released by 30th OCTOBER 2017.

The Anglesea SLSC Bronze Camp is a week long, beach based camp, providing an opportunity for 15-18 year olds to gain their Surf Lifesaving Bronze Medallion qualification in a fun and friendly environment, enabling them to gain the core award to become nationally accredited surf lifesavers with a Certificate II in Public Safety (Aquatic Rescue).

A typical Bronze Camp day involves;

  • Morning fitness on the beach

  • Theory classes in the clubhouse

  • Water rescue classes and surf skills sessions on the beach

  • Evening activities at Camp Wilkin

On Bronze Camp you will be trained and assessed in skills that you will be expected to perform as a surf lifesaver. The units studied include: 

  • Safety and Wellbeing

  • Surf Awareness and Skills

  • Anatomy and Physiology

  • Basic First Aid

  • Resuscitation and Basic Oxygen

  • Radio Communications

  • Rescue Techniques

  • Patrols

Candidates are supervised day and night and live-in at Camp Wilkin in Anglesea. The instructors are all highly qualified surf lifesavers, and we also provide pastoral care and medical support from trained professionals. Food is provided by Camp Wilkin.
