Brief Summary:
This is our annual Joey Mob Holiday, which is usually the Joeys first taste of camping. Each Joey is to attend with one parent/carer for fun, interactive and challenging activities at the Glenfield Scout Activity Centre, a wonderful bushland environment.
Additional Information

The Joey mob Holiday is in a bushland environment, so appropriate clothing and hats must be worn to protect from the sun and enclosed shoes with socks (above the ankle) should also be worn at all times to prevent injury and minimise risk of insect bites.  See attached suggested camping gear list.
Each Joey must have an adult stay with them for the entire camp (this is part of the Scout Australia rules for Joeys).  It is expected that the parent/carer participates in the Joey Scout activities with their Joey - trust us, it's a lot of fun!!

The online A2 Adult Helper application is via this link: https://www.nsw.scouts.com.au/adult-helper-application/
This is FREE but, does require you to hold a current Working With Children Check (WWCC) - if don’t have one, please apply via below link - it does require you to go to Service NSW centre for ID verification: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-working-children-check   You will also be emailed a link for a Police Check - email must be actioned within seven days!!
PLEASE ACTION ABOVE NOW as it is taking up to three weeks to complete - No Joey to be registered without a Parent/Carer registering too.

You will be placed into patrols and will rotate around the camp site with many adventures to be had!  On Saturday night there is a dress-up parade for Joeys and their parents with a prize awarded to the most creative outfit (please don't go to too much expense, anything you have around the house will be fine).  The theme this year is "Camp Creepy" - think Halloween.  After dinner, there will also be a traditional Scout campfire, so make sure you bring your camp blanket or something warm to wrap up in.

NB:  There will be other camp blanket badges for sale at $2 each - please bring cash for payment.
Camping in tents is strongly encouraged.  For those parents and Joey's camping, you may arrive at the camp at 1pm, to allow adequate time to set up your tent.  Preference is for a small tent but, if you only have a large family tent, or do not have a tent - please discuss with your Leader in case one is available for loan from your Scout Group.  For those with exceptional circumstances who are unable to stay in a tent, you will be provided with dormitory style bunk bed accommodation with other families.

- The E-Permission form (emailed to you after registering) is to be submitted for each Joey and adult attending.  Please ensure medical information and emergency contact details (someone NOT attending the camp) are complete and accurate.  
- If you are NOT happy for your child to participate on the Jumping Castle, Billy Carts or Obstacle Course (including slack lines) - please specify in the permission form.
- Please see attached Camp Kit List.

- All Joeys may bring a plain light-coloured pre-washed and ironed tee-shirt or other material item (minimum size 20x25cm) for screen-printing purposes.
***As with all Scout camps - this is an alcohol and drug free event and smoking may only occur in the designated area due to fire risks.***

We will be following NSW Health Covid safe protocols.  Should you have flu-like symptoms, please stay home and get tested.  Should you be a close contact, it is recommended that you bring and wear a face mask whilst indoors or if unable to socially distance outdoors.

Any queries, please feel free to discuss with your Leader or call me on: 0407 044 685.  We look forward to seeing you all on camp for our next great adventure!!
