Silver Camp is for anyone who has their Bronze Medallion and wishes to complete a series of Advanced Courses and become further involved in the club. Silver Camp is a stepping stone to becoming an instructor for future Bronze Camps and a great opportunity to share in a fun week with friends.
It runs in December in the week prior to Bronze Camp, with participants staying at the Lorne Surf Life Saving Club Bunkhouse.
With the current COVID-19 restrictions in place in Metro Melbourne and Regional Victoria, the Lorne S.L.S.C. has not been able to arrange this season’s Silver Camp with any certainty. As you can imagine, many of our trainers, assessors and candidates typically reside in Metro Melbourne making it incredibly difficult to ensure a camp or course can be held this year.
The Training & Assessment committee is currently working with the Executive committee and Life Saving Victoria (LSV) to discuss the possibilities, if any, there may be of a camp or course running at the end of the year. While we don’t have any answers at the moment, we are hoping to present some options to you in the near future.
If you’re interested in attending the 2020 Silver Camp for the upcoming 2020/21 season, given it will be able to be held in line with COVID-19 restrictions or would be interested in attaining the award this year through a course in line with COVID-19 restrictions, please fill out the form below. We will then be able to contact you to update you on any and all options there may be for training and assessment this season.

As you would suspect, due to the level of uncertainty behind the camps running this year, we are only able to provide everyone with some proposed camp/course dates. See below:
