Quotes from Camp Participants

‘The camp was the best thing I have ever done. If I get the chance I would love to come again. I learnt a lot about teamwork and leadership and look forward to using those skills at my club’
(Sarah Cohen, Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club).

‘Thanks so much for the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful experience. I learnt a lot while having so much fun with new friends’
(Hailey Ross-Smith, Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club).

‘The camp was excellent, I’ve learnt a lot and hope to take this back to my club and share my skills and experience with the younger kids. The food and facilities were great and the staff were really approachable and kind. The activities pushed me outside my comfort zone and involved working together as a team and this has definitely taught me a lot’
(Alexandra Madeley, Chelsea Longbeach Surf Life Saving Club).
