Hike 2015 - Expectations of Scouts

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. (Refer to maximum pack weight on the Camping and Hiking Information sheets).

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.
