Run over the summer school holidays, the hugely successful Rise-Up and T.O.A.D. camps are important in building inter-club youth friendships. It also provides opportunities for participants to develop leadership and interpersonal skills, essential to not only their success in surf lifesaving but also in day to day life.
There is also an opportunity to obtain qualifications that will assist in their ongoing development towards being a volunteer patrolling surf lifesaver.
These camps are generously supported by the Scottish Masonic Charitable Foundation.
