Shakedown Hike: 24th - 25th Mar

posted 2 Mar 2012, 02:29 by Epping Scouts   [ updated 2 Mar 2012, 02:32 ]
This Shakedown Hike is designed to prepare you for Scout Hike, however it is also a great opportunity for you to learn basic hiking and camping skills that you will need in your Scouting Life. This year, we will be hiking from Baden Powell Scout Ceter in Pomona Street, Pennant Hills to North Epping Hall (a distance of about 4km). Upon arriving at the hall, we will set up camp on the "wet 'n wild" field, cook dinner and then have a campfire.
You will be expected to prepare for the hike as a patrol - including organising a menu and food - as well as hiking and camping as a patrol.
Parents are most welcome to join us - but please fill in an A1 form.
