2013 Family Camp - Fri 25th to Sun 27th October

posted 3 Oct 2013, 04:06 by Andrew Yeaman
1st Heatherdale Venturer, Scout, Cub and Joey families are all invited to attend our 2013 family camping event. We are welcoming and encouraging all families to attend. You may be able to participate for one or two nights or we are close enough to simply come along for a day trip if you are unable to stay overnight!

Longridge Park: is in Warrandyte beside the Yarra River. Aptly named, the long ridge through this park offers spectacular and breathtaking views of the Yarra River and surrounds. Eastern Grey Kangaroos are frequently seen in the area and a quiet visitor may also spot platypus playing in the river. Cushioned between the Yarra River and the surrounding slopes, the river flats have been established as the perfect camping retreat.

How to get there: See Attached Document ‘Longridge Park Visitor Guide’.

Camping Fees: Per Family - $20 for 1 night or $35 for two nights.

NEW for 2013……Saturday Night Group Dinner: 
This year we have organised a group roast beef and pork dinner for all campers at a cost of $6 per person. So enjoy a night off from cooking (you will need to supply your own plates and cutlery).

As this is a family camp, you are responsible for your own children and you will need to bring all the camping equipment/food you require.
The Scouts do have tents available if you should need to borrow one (please see your Leaders.)

There is a BBQ and hot water available as well as showers and toilet facilities for your convenience.

Please advise via e-mail if you are planning to attend, please include family name, nights you are attending and the number of people for dinner jbogeman AT bigpond.net.au. Please record this information on a sealed envelope with money enclosed and hand to your Leaders.

We look forward to another successful and fun camp with our 1st Heatherdale families.
