What is is?
Wanderee is a combined bush walking, award scheme activity. Camping is at a fixed location and is on private property at Mt. Irvine. Scouts provide their own food and cook in Patrols. Fireplaces & hot water will be provided. Scouts to navigate with daypacks to map referenced activity points where they will do ~2hrs badge work (vs Scouthike 20mins).
Leaders will run each of the Activity Points (APs). Walks will be on Fire Trails or defined tracks through the Blue Mountains National Park surrounding Mt Wilson/Mt Irvine. Scouts will be instructed not to leave these under any circumstances. Scouts will walk between APs unattended. Prior to leaving HQ in the morning, each Patrol's planned route for the day will be checked by a Leader. The PL and one other Scout may carry a mobile phone so they can call HQ should they need to. Reception is however patchy.
