The Corroboree 2018 is a five day standing camp run by Hunter & Coastal Region for Scouts. It is being held at Tocal Agricultural College in the Hunter Valley. 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.
Hunter & Coastal Troops are to be formed on a district basis, using Jamboree style dining areas using patrol tents for scouts.
