  • No Dangerous Items: Knives, matches, lighters, cigarettes, and alcohol are prohibited to prevent accidents and bushfires.

First Aid

  • First-Aid Kit: The camp has a first-aid kit, but clients must also bring one.
  • Medications: Ensure all prescribed medications are marked, recorded on the application form, and may need to be handed over to staff for safekeeping. Report all injuries promptly.
