The Corroboree is a five day standing camp run by Hunter & Coastal Region for Scouts. It is being held at Tocal Agricultural College in the Hunter Valley. The camp is based on the patrol system with Troops camping Jamboree style across several sub-camps, with Scouts and Leaders being fully catered for.
Hunter & Coastal Troops are to be formed on a district basis, using Jamboree style dining areas, using patrol tents for Scouts.
Scouts from other Regions will be formed into Patrols and buddied-up with Hunter & Coastal Troops to experience the Corroboree Camp.
Activities will commence on 18th Jan, and will include exciting bases and commercial activites, as well as a Bivouac overnight hike, where scouts will bring a day pack, small tarp & poles to sleep in their Hutchie.
Venturers are invited to attend Corroboree as helpers on the Venturer base activity. They will camp (in hike tents) & eat at the Venturer sub-camp.
