Summer Surf Program
The Summer Surf Program is a fundraising and member development program that aims to engage surf lifesavers from across Queensland, and to develop their skills and experience for their future careers both within and outside the Surf Life Saving movement.
The Summer Surf Program (formerly known as Summer Surf Girl) has injected more than $17 million into surf life saving clubs throughout Queensland since its inception in 1964.
All funds raised are distributed back into participating clubs to be used in a variety of ways, such as the maintenance and purchase of new rescue equipment, surf safety education, member development, increasing volunteer memberships and expanding training programs.
The program continues to grow and develop and in 2018 we saw ambassadors from as far north as Townsville right down to Currumbin. Collectively they raised over $500,000 for their respective surf clubs.
