Group Camp for 2016 will be held at Camp Coutts Scout Camp from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd October. Camp Coutts is situated near Waterfall Station just south of Heathcote. Travel time from Epping is about 1 hour off peak. Group Camp is where all sections of the Epping Group, including 1st Epping Rovers, are invited to a weekend camp together. There will be sectional activities and also some group activities. I am hoping that the Rovers will be cooking something special for Dinner on Saturday. The camp is on the 2nd weekend of 4th term so attendance numbers will be finalised on Monday 17th October.
There will be a huge camp fire on Saturday night so I hope each section will be have some camp fire songs and skits. .
Cubs, Scouts and Venturers will be provided with tents and camping in their sections. Joeys will need to camp with their parents. Contact your section leader if you will need to borrow a tent. Rovers will be organising their own tents. As with all Scout camps, each Joey must have a parent in attendance at all times while they are attending the camp.
The cost for the weekend is $65 for those arriving on the Friday evening or $50 for those who arrive on the Saturday. Please refer to the attached E1 Permission Note for more details including what to bring and how to find the camp site.
Please print and complete the attached Activity Notification form (E1) and remember to indicate when you will be arriving (Friday night or Saturday) so that appropriate catering arrangements can be made. I need to receive page 1 of the form by 17th October so that we can organise sufficient food for everyone for the weekend.
