What is Rat Skin?

Rat Skin... is basically Dragon Skin in reverse. Venturers set up and run interesting and challenging bases for Leaders, Rovers and other adults. The Venturers are responsible for every aspect of the weekend except how the adults camp, so the adults get to unwind and relax. It is also a static camp, bring the comfy bed.

When is Rat Skin?

21st and 22nd of September 2019 Bases open 9.00am Saturday and close 12.00pm Sunday Base camp move in on Friday evening, please feel free to get set up early and get a good nights sleep, or arrive Saturday morning and set up when you can. The closing date is the 31st of August. This means that all paperwork needs to be received by this date.

Where is Rat Skin?

We are heading to Minnamurra Campsite for this year's camp! Come and see one of The Golden West Regions campsites.

Who are we?

Rat Skin is a Golden West Region event to which everyone in Scouting is invited. Venturers from units in the Golden West Region form the Rat Skin Committee and from there organise the event with a little guidance from a couple of leaders.

Who can come?

All adults involved in Scouting (Leader, parent, rover, helper) are invited to form a team of 4 to 6 or 7 and experience a weekend of activities organised just for them. Every Venturer unit is invited to bring along a couple of bases relevant to this year's theme and give our older scouting friends a weekend to remember.

70s, 80s & 90s

This year we are heading back to the 70s, 80s and 90s! Please email us your ideas as soon as you think of them so that we can confer and make sure everyone does something different.

What does it cost?

$20 covers you for Rat Skin Badge, camping fees and expenses related to the Saturday night activity. (there are showers this year)
