Please note that this camp is predominately for our U/14 age group. However, limited positions will be made available for U/15s who missed the program last and are looking to attain their SRC. An U15 attending SRC this year will be eligible for Bronze camp next year provided they are of age. Please choose the correct age group when registering.

The Surf Rescue Certificate (SRC) provides participants with the basic skills and knowledge of surf awareness, rescue techniques (boards/rescue tubes), CPR, first aid, communications, radio operations, standard patrol practices, teamwork and fitness!

Note: In the past this has been run as a part of the Nipper program. Please note that SRC is now removed from the Nipper program, and as such, signup is done separately.
