2020 Summer Camp Karridale and Nannup
Boranup Maze, Caves Road, Karridale 1/1/20 – 7/1/20
Tribal Grounds, Chalwell Rd Nannup 7/1/20-14/1/20
Hi GWN members and friends,
This year we will be camping in the beautiful Boranup Forest first, then onto our Tribal Home, donated to us by John Thompson many years ago. We will enjoy the hospitality of Malcolm Mortimer at his property on Caves Road, opposite Boranup Drive which winds through the Karri Forests, about 20km South of Margaret River.
The property has shade under the peppermint trees and a nearby dam, which may or may not have enough water in it to get wet. We camped there on the Cape to Cape walk in April, a lovely spot, we will find some local walks and many beautiful areas are just a short GWN bus ride away. We are looking for a volunteer to drive the bus.
Summer camps tend to be somewhat informal, what follows is where we are up to so far.
We are taking the truck, with cooking gear and a few hundred litres of water. Bring your own food to share meals (a box of about $40-$50 worth, you can cook for yourself if you want to). It all happens organically so be flexible. We can do food runs into Margaret River /Nannup as required. We also ask for a donation of $15-$20 a day.
Memberships are due ($20 a year) and all positions are open. You can pay membership at the Summer camp or details can be found on the website greatwalknetwork.org. Nominations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. They can also be accepted on the day. The AGM will be on Sunday, 5th January at 10am at Boranup Maze.
I am looking forward to spending time with you all and having a walk together in community.
