14 April 2023

Congratulations Kaylah and Calum, the Ingenia Holiday Parks Junior Lifesavers of the Year 2023.

Kaylah Broadhead of Nobby SLSC and Calum Reiter of Coogee SLSC have been named the Ingenia Holiday Parks Junior Lifesaver of the year after three days of team building and leadership development on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

Formally recognized during a presentation ceremony on Thursday morning, 13 April, Kaylah and Calum were two in a group of 22 eager 14-year-olds who came from each of the 11 branches across NSW, having been acknowledged themselves as Junior Lifesavers of the Year for their region.

Throughout their experience, the group of young lifesavers were able to grow network, establish lasting connections and build knowledge through fun and interactive learning.

The pair has significant goals to achieve through their platform, with both aiming to leverage their recognition as a springboard for driving meaningful change within their movement. The judges noticed that the duo placed a strong emphasis on education and a desire to create tangible change, which they considered an asset despite their young age.

Matt Young, General Manager of Tourism for Ingenia Holiday Parks, said “being involved in a program now in its 33rd year gave them great pride”.

“We operate holiday parks across the Eastern coast and it’s so important that we respect and value our guests,” he said. “Working with Surf Life Saving NSW facilitates this. We really see this partnership and our support of the next generation of lifesavers as an investment in the future of our coastline.”
