Come and join in a relaxed weekend with the whole family...

This year we will hold our now famous November Belmont Scouts Family Camp at "Treetops Camp and Activity Centre" a great Scout camp at Riddles Creek, just 100km from Geelong.

We would like to encourage families to camp if this is practical, but no one should feel excluded.... caravans/campers are an option (and can even access power!) or for those who really need a bit more comfort there are cabins (there are 5 separate 3BR cabins each sleeping 7).

Below is a summary of costs while full details of accommodation options and a map are attached.

Camping $5 per person per night 

Caravan with power $20 per night for two people, $7 per extra person (caravan without power as for camping)

Cabin (there are only 5 so be quick to send an email to
3BR cabin sleeps seven, $100 for two people for two nights, $24 per extra adult, $16 per extra child

Friday night your on your own!

Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday
This will be provided and will include juice, cereals, and bacon, eggs and toast. 

Lunches on Saturday and Sunday
As in previous years to allow a maximum of flexibility please bring the makings for your own family

Saturday Dinner
This year we are planning a BBQ and asking that you bring meat for your own family and either a salad or desert to share.

$30 per family to cover breakfasts and incidentals

This is a great campsite with lots of open space. Activities that we can do at Treetops include Nature Trails, Flying Fox, Low Ropes Course and Orienteering. Are you wanting a quite weekend well that's also an option as our Family Camps are designed for you to be as active or contemplative as you want. The kids make new friends with those younger and older and parents are often surprised how relaxed a weekend it is though please remember parents are of course responsible for their own children as leaders are not at family camp to care for your kids! (Kids cannot attend Family Camp without a parent... unless another family "adopts" your child for the weekend).
