Survival Camp

Ever wondered if you could survive if you were stuck in the bush with only a few items?

If so, the Moonee Valley District Survival Camp may be for you!

Over 3 days and 2 nights, you will be taught new skills in survival and use many of your existing skills to construct shelters, purify water, make fire, obtain and cook food, navigate and learn how to improve your chance for rescue.

This camp is not for the faint hearted. You won’t have a camp kitchen with lots of food on offer, nice eating shelters or tents to sleep in or even a sleeping bags to keep you warm. You will need to work to survive.

What will the Survival Camp cover?

We will focus on the Outdoor Adventurer Skills (OAS) Bushcraft Survival stream. Most of level 4 and 5 will be covered, with some ‘I’ statements from level 6 and 7.

Where will Survival Camp be held?

2nd Castlemaine Scout Camp and the surrounding area near Chewton, Victoria

When is it run?

AFL Grand Final long weekend – Friday (a.m.) 24th of September to Sunday (p.m.) 26th of September

What does it cost?
