I'm excited already!!!!!!! (Lucky)
To do this activity scouts need to be able to walk carrying a full pack (10kg) all day for 2 days without complaining or needing adults to help them along, It is a hard weekend but always fun. They will be with 4-5 others and will be self sufficient. To make sure you are able to complete the weekend comfortably we will be doing some hikes and camps in the new year but please feel free to walk hard over the school holidays :-)
Please put this date in your calendars for when your scouts will be at scouthike next year!!!
ScoutHike celebrating 26 years in 2019 is Sydney North Region's premier annual Scout Section event held in May each year. If you are interested in an exciting weekend, lightweight hiking around a NSW State Forest - then this is the event you must register for!
