In April, Surf Life Saving NSW held its first Lifesaving Development Camp for surf lifesavers aged 16-21 years. The live-in program focused on developing and enhancing the knowledge and skills of young people, while at the same time preparing them to take on more responsibility in their patrol teams, their own clubs, and the wider community.
Attendees participated in exciting, fast-paced simulated lifesaving scenarios using the standard patrolling equipment to manage ‘no-notice’ scenarios that became more complex as their skills developed. Here's a look at how their week unfolded.
