Fri 1st - Sun 3rd November – Family Camp    


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 you’re 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).


Please advise if attending or not and offer any comments via the following below...

Family Camp @ Treetops





On  Monday the 2nd and Wednesday the 4th December, we have come and try craft nights While we Leaders pride ourselves as a knowledgeable group, Our guys are great IT Gurus, I am a bit of a "Jack Of All Trades"  and Hathi Is on Sick Leave,we are limited in craft work.

This means we need to find some people with some kind of unique talent that involves something like sticking beads on string, or putting coloured dots on paper..

 So if you know anyone that can teach a funky craft and can help out on either/both of these dates – please come and talk to us about it.
