This is to be treated as a mid-weight camp. There will be a BBQ this year for anyone who wants to use it. I will also have an esky for storage of perishable items for everyone. Scouts will be required to organise, pack, and setup their camp. They will also have to cook / arrange their meals. Leaders / Parents will be there to help and supervise.
