Club Lorne Outdoor Education Camp: Unmatched programs for a lifetime experience

Club Lorne Outdoor Education Camp is an exciting concept in school camps. We are the only accredited camp operating out of one of the 57 lifesaving clubs in Victoria. 

As such we have been able to develop exciting programs for school groups who have been coming to us now for 23 years. Being able to enjoy all the advantages of a camp situated directly on the prime location of the Lorne foreshore. The camp boasts a commanding up close and personal ocean view from the balcony and the main dining hall of the Lorne Surf Lifesaving Clubhouse. Something quite special which is not able to be experienced at any other school camp. 

Operating from a lifesaving club allows us to closely align our education objectives with those of the Lorne SLSC itself. 

Our Mission is to: 

  • Teach students how to avoid the R.I.P. by being able to identify dangerous rips, and how to react when caught in one. 

  • Give all students, regardless of experience or ability, a positive and fun learning experience in our extensive learn to surf program. 

  • Encourage and experience a healthy active lifestyle. 

  • Teach new skills in beach safety, self-esteem, teamwork, and leadership. 

  • Teach new life skills and gain confidence. 

  • Achieve success regardless of age, gender, or ability. 

  • Maintain safety standards to the highest level without compromise. 

The 7 separate bunkrooms in the lifesaving clubhouse accommodate 80 people. We also have our outdoor hiking tents which can accommodate another 50 people. 

We have developed a range of exciting, educational and fun programs over the 23 years of our operation. 

After listening to the positive feedback from clients over our many years of camp operations. The above programs have been carefully devised to ensure all students get the most out of their time with us here at Club Lorne. 

Please visit the website at and go to “Programs” in order to see the specific activities included in each of the programs of the 3 distinct camps of: Surf Stars, Surf Legends, or Surf Gurus. 

You will find that these programs will give students a fantastic experience including many of Lorne’s highlights and at least one surf lesson each day on the camp. 

This is what our clients have continually told us is the highlight of their camp. So, this is why we give our clients the great experience they continually tell us is so good, and creates such great memories for their respective camp groups. 

Our main point of difference is that of us being both the Surf School and the Camp. As such we have developed many new and exciting ways to better celebrate the students’ learning and skill development while out in the surf and on camp activities with us here at Club Lorne Camp. 

All student camp attendees receive certificates of completion at the conclusion of their camp program. 

Our meals at Club Lorne have been described by client groups as healthy, varied and plentiful. We also cater for most special dietary requirements which we ask are communicated to us at least a week prior to arrival at camp. 

At Club Lorne we offer a unique, exciting, and memorable experience for your student group.
