Term 3 Scout Program 2017 (low tech version)

Sunraysia District Scout Hike 2017 - 28th - 30th July

The District Hike is only ONE WEEK away, we need to get those not on CareMonkey signed up and their profiles completed.

Friday 28th July at 7:00pm (on Yelta Rd, 29km past Meridian Road) to Sunday 30th June at 1pm (Deadman's Track, 15km down Yelta Road). We shall meet at our hall at 6pm and head out together in cars. 

Scouts will be self-catering so need to plan their menu and bring all required food. Water will be available to fill up drink bottles. Cooking equipment and tents can be shared with friends .Bring warm sleeping gear as it will be VERY cold. Bring an extra blanket!

For more information call John on 0477175911 or check out our Facebook group for the ongoing discussion about everything 5th Mildura.

New Scouts and Scout with less than 12 months experience: Hike with a day pack. (Clothes, lunch, snacks and water). Cooking equipment, bedding, food, and tent does not need to be carried.

Older and more experienced Scouts:

Hike with full pack. (Clothes, food and water, cooking equipment, bedding and tent. Sharing of tent components, cooking equipment, etc. would be a good idea. (Refer to maximum pack weight on the Camping and Hiking Information sheets).

Water and gear not carried by Scouts will be carried by support vehicles. Water bottle refills will be available during the day.

I recommend, unless the Scout has a very good, light weight, hike sleeping bag, additional blankets should be carried by the support vehicle. The support vehicle will deliver the extra blankets and camping gear (for younger Scouts) to the Saturday night camp, then again to the Sunday finishing point.

SCOUTHIKE 2017 TRIP TO TALLAROOK


SCOUTHIKE 2017, Tallarook State Forrest
(Same weekend as our local Sunraysia District Scout Hike)

Click to book!

Sunraysia District Scouts have the opportunity to travel down to Tallarook State Forest to participate in the Victorian ScoutHike, along with 800+ other scouts from around the state. (The local district hike will be held on the same weekend, so Scouts need to choose one or the other.) 

The cost to attend the Victorian Scout Hike is $100 (Transport and registration) plus individual's are required to provide their own food for the weekend. (Food can be sorted out closer to the departure date in activity patrols if agreed, this would be approximately $20).

This is a fantastic opportunity for our Scouts to travel to a state event. Numbers are capped at the first 20 Scouts to pay in full through TryBooking. If we do have more interest, we may be able to get an extra van / car and parent helpers to take more scouts.

We are aiming to take 3 x patrols of 6 Scouts (18 Scouts), the remaining 2 seats are available to parent helpers ($50 per ticket for bus transport only).

There is NO COST for parent helpers wishing to attend, who provide their own transport.

Places are limited due to the number of seats on the bus.
