Frequently Asked Questions

When and Where?

The event runs every year at Easter, rotating between Blackwood, Mataranka & Rowallan Scout Camps.

Hoadley Hide 2022 will be held at Mataranka Scout Camp from the 15th to 18th of April.

What do I need to bring?

Hoadley Hide is a camping and hiking activity, therefore you’ll need the usual clothing, tent, hike pack & food. Water will be available at stunt sites and the Venturer Overnight Camp (VOC) overnight.

A detailed recommended equipment list has been published on our Equipment Page. Remember that on Saturday night we will be doing a night hike/wide game, so you will need to bring torches and warm clothing for this activity.

Can I get public transport to the site?

You sure can! You can stay the Thursday night at Sunbury Scout Hall and we will assist you in getting to the site on the Friday via our shuttle bus.

Note: due to public transport works over the Easter weekend, all Venturers intending to catch Public Transport must arrive on the Thursday night to ensure you can catch the shuttle bus from Sunbury on Friday morning.

How much?

Here is pricing for Venturers and for Rovers/Leaders/Adult Helpers for Hoadley Hide 2022:

  • Venturer (Private Transport – arriving Friday morning) – $72
  • Venturer (Public Transport + Shuttle Bus – staying at Sunbury Thursday night)  – $99
  • Staff (Rover/Leader/Adult Helper) – $45

What does the Rover & Leader Fee cover?

As with the 2021 Hide, we are providing a lot more for the Rovers & Leaders who volunteer with the event. This includes:

  • Camping on site
  • Catering from Friday Lunch, through to Monday Breakfast
  • Provision of toilets & on-site showers

Due to the increased involvement and support we require, the Team has felt it is best to provide catering so crews & volunteers don’t lose time cooking or being tied up with trying to setup eating shelters or other services.

Do I need to register my entire team at the same time?

No, you don’t have to. Each person can pay for their registration separately and at their own leisure.
