48 youth members from 27 surf life saving clubs spent 4 days at Pemberton earlier this week for the annual Rise Up Camp. With days filled with sunshine and fun, campers learnt leadership skills and formed friendships with members from all over the state that they’ll keep for life.
Each day was filled with fun yet challenging activities such as constructing rafts to be paddled in the brook, to extreme mountain biking and milk crate stacking! Participants also attended to the more serious task of training for their Advanced Resuscitation Techniques Certificate, which all campers successfully attained.
Camper Jack Michael, from Cottesloe Surf Life Saving Club, said attending the Rise Up Camp inspired him to want to create new pathways for his club and to continue to develop his own leadership skills.
“I would highly recommend this camp for young surf lifesavers who want to make a positive difference in their community”, he said.
All up the camp was a huge success with participants wishing it went for longer. We thank The Scottish Masonic Charitable Foundation of WA for their continued support of our youth programs, which includes the Rise Up and TOAD Camps.
