Our annual District camp is being held at the start of the next school holidays.
As this is a pre-Jamboree year it will be a four night camp, commencing on the Friday and concluding on the Tuesday.
We will be camping together in Jamboree style Troop camp sites and using the sort of gear that will be used at the Jamboree, to familiarise Scouts with what to expect at Jamboree. 
So each Mandurina Troop will consist of approx. 6 Patrols with 4 Leaders.
  • Where: Clifford Park Scout Camp – Clifford Drive, Wonga Park Melways 24 J6 Scouts can move in any time after 1-00pm.
  • Cost: $105 (Includes Camp fees, food & badges), Leaders are free.
  • Activities: Challenge Valley, Archery, Crate Stacking, Ice Blocking, Orienteering, Amateur Radio & Fire Challenge.
  • Monday: Construction Badge - All scouts will complete their Construction Badge at either Pioneer or Explorer level
  • Tuesday: pack up with final parade at 2-00pm July 3.
  • Numbers are required by June 20 (to ensure catering allows for any special needs) and to complete Troop formations.
By now you will have received the CareMonkey form - please complete asap (even if you are NOT coming to the camp).
You may have noticed that this form includes a new option to allow you to pay for events from within the CareMonkey form.
Please use this facility and let us know if there are any issues.

With Mandurina coming up next week, it is time to start getting ready!

In order to have a good time at camp your Scout needs to be prepared for cold and wet conditions.
In addition to our standard gear list (see http://www.1st-heatherdale.asn.au/scouts/resources/PersonalGearList-StandingCamp.pdf), there are a couple of things to make sure you bring:
  • a decent sleeping bag*
  • an inner sheet for your sleeping bag
  • thermals
  • a beanie, gloves and scarf
  • a waterproof coat
  • plenty of clothes to layer up - thermals/T-shirts/fleece tops/warm coat
