Bush Nippers Summer 2024 Program

The Bush Nippers education program is a regional and rural inland adaptation to “Beach” Nippers, which aims to build lifesaving and water safety knowledge and skills of children aged 5 to 14 years in open water environments.

Bush Nippers is an iconic program for many Victorians which teaches lifesaving skills while extending swimming and water safety competencies. Due to the popularity of this program and limited delivery within coastal areas only, many Victorians are unable to participate.

The program is designed to be offered as progressive learning experiences, suitable for all abilities.

The Bush Nipper education program pilot was funded through the Victorian Government and forms part of the Public Water Safety Initiative.

Program dates:

Wednesday 10 January to Friday 12 January 2023.

There are two-time slots available for booking:

The program is a low cost, 4-5 day intensive summer program teaching swimming and water safety to children from 4 years of age. Each program consists of 5 x 30 minute lessons (or 4 x 35 minute lessons for Week 1) starting at the same time each day throughout the week.

Parents are encouraged to enrol their children into 1, 2 or 3 programs across the 3 weeks on offer in January.

Children under 10 years old

  • Children under 10 years old will not be admitted without an appropriate parent/guardian. The parent/guardian must be 16 years or over and adhere to all conditions of entry.
  • Children under 10 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian while in the aquatic area of the centre.
  • The parent/guardian must position himself or herself to have a clear view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them and the child.

Children 10 years and older

  • For children 10 years and older, parents must use their knowledge of the child's swimming ability to determine the level of supervision required.
  • Parent /guardians are not required to be present in the centre.
