1st Belmont Family Camp May 2016

posted 19 Mar 2016, 16:12 by Keith Robertson

Located approximately 100kms from Geelong (140 Royal Parade, Riddells Creek see and surrounded by a natural bush setting, Treetops is the perfect place to relax and watch the wildlife or get  moving with activities such as the low ropes course and mini golf. At night sit back and enjoy a blazing camp fire. 

Choose your accommodation from caravans/campers (you can even access power!), Pack Accommodation (family bunk rooms) and if you’re quick there are even self contained cabins complete with twin bathrooms and a lounge.

Family Camps are just like a camping holiday, except cheaper and with a bunch of people you already sort of know.

The Fine Print: Family camp is different to other scout camps—parents look after their own children as leaders are not leaders, just parents. (so kids cannot attend Family Camp without a parent... unless another family "adopts" your child for the weekend)

Come prepared to help—everybody pitches in to make family camp work —help with communal breakfast, lunch, entertaining, set-up or clean-up—then REEEELAAAAXXX.
