What is it?
Gilweroo is a full-on activity camp that runs across a weekend in November at Bay Park, Mt Martha.
Activities, include flying fox, geocaching, catapults, rock climbing, water slide to name but a few. 
For a more complete list see https://www.gilweroo.com.au/activities.

How does it work?
This is a patrol based camp where each patrol participates in either the Omega or Sigma activity stream. Each stream consists of 11 scheduled activities - some of which are common to both streams; however, one point of difference is Air Rifles. This activity is only available to the Omega stream and open to participants who are at least 12 years old 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 (15 Nov) and return to the hall by 5pm on Sunday afternoon (17 Nov). You will need to have had tea before we head off to Gilweroo.

How much does it cost?
The total cost for the weekend is $80.

What do I bring?

What can my parents do to help?
