On Good Friday eight cub families headed off for the short drive to Camp Windeyer on Berowra Creek. The campsite is accessible only by water so we had all our canoes, plus the use of the camp dinghy for ferrying gear and passengers. We parked our vehicles and trailer at Crosslands Reserve, as that saves about 10-15km of narrow winding road and is about the same distance to paddle.
The site consists of lushly grassed campsites and a hut built in the 1960s. There is no electricity, apart from a solar/battery system for lights. Inside is a kitchen with a large stove and gas fridges. Outside a gas barbecue and wood fired copper for hot water.
There are two smaller bedrooms with 8 bunks, and a large hall for about 24 with mattresses on the floor. There's also a dining room and leaders lounge. We particularly enjoyed looking through the old photo albums. The property has been looked after by the Scouts since at least 1938.
There was plenty of firewood supplied for an evening campfire. Mobile phone coverage was patchy, Telstra was ok.
Behind the hut is a pretty decent obstacle course. Following the rain there were large pools under some of the obstacles, which made them even better.
We spent many hours exploring the creeks by canoe and fishing from the banks. A few lucky cubs managed to catch and release small bream and flathead.
