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. All of level 4 and most of level 5 will be covered.

Where will Survival Camp be held?

Rowallan Scout camp but not where you think!

When is it run?

Grand Final long weekend, Friday the 29th of September to Sunday the 1st of October.

There is also a pre-camp meeting held at 7pm on the 11th of September at the 1st Strathmore Scout hall.

What does it cost?

$65 per Scout.
