Teagan Thom – Inverloch Surf Life Saving Club; Development Camps Coordinator, Membership & Leadership Development Executive

‘Life Saving Victoria’s U13 Development Camp provides participants with the opportunity to meet fellow lifesavers in a fun and relaxed environment and form friendships with members from other clubs and districts across the state. Candidates participate in a variety of activities that challenge them to step outside their comfort zone and achieve goals they may not have thought were possible. Candidates also work towards building beginner level leadership and team work skills through participation in group activities such as initiatives and raft building. During these activities candidates learn that sound leadership, clear communication, respecting the opinions of others and working together are essential in achieving successful outcomes. Over the course of the weekend candidates gain greater confidence, develop new skills, build friendships, are exposed to the leadership opportunities that exist within lifesaving and most of all have fun! The U13 Development Camp is an incredibly worthwhile experience for all and should be promoted widely by lifesaving clubs to ensure their members don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity’.
