Family Camp - 13-15 February, 2015

Family camp is on again this year at Lake Lyell, a few kilometres out of Lithgow.  As a Family Camp, the parents will be responsible for looking after their children and, for this reason, will need to attend unless you can get them adopted out to another family there for the weekend.  We encourage siblings to join us to also experience the joys of camping and water activities.  As with last year, we will be camping at the water's edge and be able to use the Group's canoes and at least one sailing boat.  PFD's (Life Jackets) and paddles will be available.
The cost is $22 per site (max 5 people) per day so it will be $44 from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon.  For those not able to stay overnight, it will cost $5 per car per day.  Parents will need to bring their own food and cooking facilities to cook their food for the weekend.  I have previously brought a small 3 burner cooker for general use.  This will be situated under the communal shelter.

Because it is so close to the start of Term 1, I require pre-payment by 9th Feb to confirm your booking.  Payment details are contained on the attached (E1) Permission note.  When you arrive, let the campsite staff know that you are with Epping Scouts and they will let you through the gate.

Further information can be found on the permission note which is attached here or call Rama for more information.  A copy of this note needs to be completed for each person attending and handed to one of the leaders on arrival at the camp site.
