Camp Commando

It was great to see Metropolitan Caloundra so well represented at the recent Sunshine Coast Surf Life Saving’s Camp Commando. With twenty participants and one leader, Mets had the largest contingent of any of the Clubs present. The participants from Under 13s 14s and 15s, took part in a range of activities designed to build their physical and mental fitness and team work skills. Mets member Brittany Wassing took on one of the leader positions. With guest lectures from longstanding leaders of our organisation and challenges lead by the Australian Defense Force among the camp’s jam packed program, the participants had many opportunities to learn from the best.

Mets was also represented in the Camp Commando coordination team, lead for the 10th year by Mets and Sunshine Coast Surf Life Saving Branch Life Member, Kirsten Phillips. Eliza Dreves and Apryl Cordingley were part of the logistics team and Mets Coach, Carl Perkins even made a guest appearance as a judge for the (land based) scynchronised swimming contest on Wednesday night.

Programs like this are vital to the development of our youth and the future of our Clubs. We are grateful to the Branch and Coordination team for putting these programs together.
