The Lifesaving Development camp (or commonly known as 'Dev Camp') is a 7-day live in program to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills of young people to the next level.
Since 2014, the camp has developed to suit the needs of our state and members and what has evolved is a program that prepares Tasmania's youth take on more responsibility in their patrol teams, their own clubs and the wider community. This is achieved by providing the young people who attend the Lifesaving Development Camp with a higher level of award training, and exposure to exciting, fast-paced simulated lifesaving scenarios. Camp attendees will use the standard patrolling equipment to manage ‘No Notice’ scenarios that become more complex as their skills develop. This style of delivery uses expert feedback to cement skills and knowledge in a relevant and practical medium.
Successful participants of the Lifesaving Development Camp will receive awards in First Aid, Advanced Resuscitation Techniques, Spinal Management, IRB Crewperson Certificate and Silver Medallion IRB Driver (If applicable).
