Information for Leaders / Venturers / Rovers / Adult HelpersAll Patrols attending ScoutHike must have at least 1 leader, ideally 2, from that Troop attending to help out at ScoutHike. They can help out by taking on any of a range of interesting jobs.
If you are sending two patrols, the requirement is still only - ideally - 2 leaders from your Troop, but more are of course welcome. All leaders, parents and other adult helpers must register online.

How do I change my registration?Send an email to the Coordinator with your full name, group/formation and details of the change.
How much does it cost for Leaders / Venturers / Rovers / Adult Helpers?All associated costs are collected by the Sleep Point Leader. The best idea is to speak to your Sleep Point Leader as each Sleep Point has different costs for the weekend.
Leaders, Venturers, Rovers & Adult Helpers travelling by bus will be required to pay $40 to cover transport costs.
Why is there a discount for early registration of Patrols?The "$10 discount price" structure was introduced to avoid the problems of previous years where patrols and leaders leave it until the last minute to register... as you can imagine, an administrative nightmare! We hope the extra $10 will be a strong incentive to register on time, and it covers the extra costs associated with this administration and the last minute acquisition of extra resources (buses etc.)
Where is ScoutHike being held?For safety and security reasons we do not disclose the location of ScoutHike on this public website. To find out, make enquiries through your District Leader or to the ScoutHike Coordinator.
Overnight Accommodation for ALL Adults, Venturers, Rovers and LeadersALL Adults, Venturers, Rovers and Leaders are required to sleep at their designated Sleep Point while at ScoutHike. There are two main reasons for this: firstly it is part of the 'conditions of use' within our licence, and secondly we need to know where you are to if we need your help to assist with, or evacuate, our youth to a different location...plus knowing your whereabouts.
ExpectationsLeaders leaving a Sleep Point OR arriving at another Sleep Point are expected to advise the Sleep Point Administration of their intentions and/or subsequent arrival. This is essentially a matter of common courtesy and part of the safety program in place to help protect our youth members.
Interested in helping but don't know what you could do?Here are some of the jobs available. The Leader/Helper Registration Form has a place where you can indicate your preferences if you haven't already been allocated a job.
How can I best prepare my Troop for ScoutHike?Getting the Troop ready for ScoutHike requires the Scouts to have a reasonable level of skill in a number of areas.
The following list is a summary of skills required to make the Scout Hike experience a happy and rewarding one for Scouts - and easily translates into a number of months of programming ideas.
