Our planned hike on the Bibbulmun Track has been moved from 21/22 September to 28/29 September because the campsite we had planned on using is overbooked.
We will be hiking from the Northern Terminus in Kalamunda to Mundaring Weir, which is a short distance of 15 km. We will need you to drop your scout off on the Saturday morning and collect them on Sunday at midday.
If your scout is on the above list can you please confirm ASAP that they are or are not going. If they are not on the list but want to go can you contact me ASAP.
There are three girl scouts going on the hike. At this point in time there are two leaders going, Myself and Mark Berry.
All scouts will be sharing a 2 man tent with a buddy. The tents will not be co-ed.
Last night we discussed what should be taken on a hike. I have attached an equipment list for your information.
Next Wednesday the scouts are to bring in their backpack packed with the gear they will be taking on the hike, minus food. We will have a look at the gear and see if anything needs to be changed. Can you please make sure they bring in their packs.
We also discussed what food to bring, can you please ask your scout to make up a menu for themselves for the weekend to discuss next Wednesday. Please note that instant noodles are not allowed on the hike as they provide no nutritional value. If you want some ideas for what to bring along feel free to contact me.There will be three hike stoves to share and there will be a fire and hotplate at the overnight campsite for cooking food.
There will be no cost for this activity.
Finally, if there are any parents that might want to come along to help out please contact me asap.
