CSalt Explained

CSalt is a one year journey that will alter the course of your lifetime. The journey is walked out with amazing learning that accredited at university level and also taught through adventure and experience at a heart level. 

CSalt students will be enrolled in a ‘Diploma of Arts’ specialising in ‘Community Development’ through Eastern College Australia. Here you will have your studies facilitated through an online classroom and supported by faculty staff and student support specialists.

This one year Diploma in Arts could form the first year of a Bachelor of Arts course at Eastern College Australia or a pathway into a Bachelor of Education at Eastern. The Diploma once successfully completed may also form a pathway into further study at the university of your choice.

Alongside your course work at Eastern College Australia you will be putting your studies into practice in a local CS placement of your choice.

This could be helping run a comp, camp or cook-up! Really whatever you feel called too. You will each be assigned a mentor from among the Christian Surfers Australia national team and will engage in a classroom discussion on a weekly basis with the CSalt Coordinator mapping the progress of your journey.

As amazing as this all sounds the main event is our CSalt “Road Trips”. Here students come together from all over the country to several locations both interstate and international and simply do life. Here the education is done on the road through meeting leaders and missionaries well-seasoned by their lives in surf ministry. You will have a chance to share the love of Jesus to the surfing communities you by to serve them.

Proposed locations for CSalt “Road Trips” 2018 are:

Phillip Island and Torquay Victoria; Margret River, WA; Raglan, Taranaki; and Gisbon, New Zealand; Northern Beaches, Sydney; and Hobart, Tas (New Swell 2018)
