Corroboree 2017

Regional H&C Scout

Corroboree 2017

The Corroboree 2017 is a five day standing camp run by Hunter & Coastal Region for Scouts. It is being held at Lostock Scout Camp on the Paterson River near the Barrington Tops. The camp is based on the patrol system with Troops camping Jamboree style across several sub-camps, with scouts and leaders being fully catered for. The camp uses chlorine treated river water for drinking and food preparation.

Hunter & Coastal Troops are to be formed on a district basis, using Jamboree style dining areas and use patrol tents for scouts. Other Regions are asked to form patrols from home groups, and where possible form Troops based on Districts or Regions, so they can supply their own gear for dining areas and tentage. Patrols can also contact H&C Troops and buddy-up to experience the Corroboree Camp.

Activities will commence on 18th Jan, and will include traditional scouting and commercial activites, as well as a Bivouac overnight hike, where scouts will bring a day pack, small tarp & poles to sleep in their Hutchie.

Venturers are invited to attend Corroboree as helpers on the District base activities. They will camp (in hike tents) & eat at the Venturer sub-camp.
