Each year, Surf Life Saving WA strives to deliver initiatives targeted at engaging our youth members with the aim of developing future leaders of our organisation.

The popular TOAD and Rise Up Camps are held annually over the summer school holidays. These camps provide a great opportunity for participants to build inter-club friendships, participate in a range of exciting activities and develop leadership and interpersonal skills essential to not only their success in surf life saving, but in day to day life.

These camps are generously supported by the Scottish Masonic Charitable Foundation.
