How does it work?

The main day time activities are run from 8:00am til 5:30pm on Saturday and 8:00am til 2:00pm Sunday, with only minimal breaks. We will meet at the Scout Hall at 6:30pm on Friday night (15 Nov) and return to the hall by 5pm on Sunday afternoon (17 Nov). You will need to have had tea before we head off to Gilweroo.

How much does it cost?
The total cost for the weekend is $80.

Mandurina is the annual Whitehorse District Camp.

The Theme of this year's Mandurina will be “gourmet cooking”.

It will be held at Clifford Park with Troops arriving Friday night and final parade being 3:30pm Sunday.
We will be camping Friday / Saturday night.

Troops will self cater and Scouts will cook in Patrols.

Looking forward to awesome camp food prepared by our Scouts and watching them learn lots of new skills. (This will also go towards their award scheme).
