This is a major activity camp and is very popular with Scouts across Victoria. It offers a wide variety of fun activities, including flying fox, geocaching, catapaults, rock climbing, water slide to name a few. The camp is held at Bay Park, Mt Martha. The total cost is $80 approx. for the weekend. This camp is very popular which means that you will need to get your name on the list fast! For more details see the Gilweroo web site.

The camp has two activity streams with each activity stream consisting of 11 scheduled activities. Some of these are common to both stream and some are unique. Our most popular activity is the Air Rifles which is part of the Omega stream. There are some conditions that apply specifically to Air Rifles: the participants must be at least 12yo and MUST have permission from a parent or guardian to participate.

The main day time activities are run from 8:00am til 5:30pm on Saturday and 8:00am til 2:00pm Sunday, with only minimal breaks. We will meet at the Scout Hall at 6:30pm on Friday night (19 Nov) and return to the hall by 5pm on Sunday afternoon (21 Nov). You will need to have had tea before we head off to Gilweroo.

We will need some people (parents/venturers) to assist with cooking across the weekend as the Scouts are kept very busy with activities throughout the weekend.
