  • All gear must be clearly marked with the owner's name. No responsibility will be taken for any lost property.
Shoes, Life Jacket, Hat, T-Shirt and Water Bottle are compulsory while on the raft!

Tents / Sleeping

  • BYO if you want to. We will also take a couple of the large 5th Mildura tents.
  • no Scout to sleep alone - everyone to share a tent with someone.
  • sleeping bag
  • roll out mattress
  • swags not recommended as they tak up too much space inside small tents.

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. There will not be a kitchen tent or hot water. 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.

Remember, if it is a day of TOTAL FIRE BAN, you will not be allowed to cook anything!
