rules that we have to abide by and also to make the camp fun for all
Age 5 to 8 years 2 children to 1 adult
Age 8 to 11 years 3 children to 1 adult
Age 11 to 14 years 4 to 1 adult
This means that if you can’t make the camp yourself your child may still be able to attend. As you can imagine this is a fairly big task to supervise kids for three nights so we want as many parents to come and have this experience.
We will have strict rules around sleeping arrangements
Boys will share with other boys in tents
Girls will share with other girls in tents
Adults that have their own children will be able to share tents with their own children
Adults will have their own tents or share with other adults.
We will formulate a roster for tasks that need to be done such as cooking meals, the plan is to spread the load as much as possible.
Meals – as cooking facilities are limited we will need to plan the meals well. please let us know of food allergies and or food type preference.
We still need to find out about some of the amenities on the island – Yes it has toilets but unsure of showers.
Rubbish – we will remove all our rubbish so take only what you are willing to take home with you.
Camping in tents – supply your own
Waiheke scouts will endeavour to supply mess and cooking tents.
No Pets allowed
No power – so bring torches ( we will also need to borrow some chilly bins)
No Fires – so cooking will be done by gas BBQ
Water – we will have to find out if the water is drinkable or not
