Camp Kallaroo Campsite Rules

Liability

Hirers of the facility agree to indemnify the Burleigh Heads Scout Group of any Liability of any nature in respect of their use of the facility and acknowledge that the use of the facility is entirely at the risk of the individual and the organisation or group using the facility.

Bunk Beds

In compliance with WH&S legislation, Scouts Queensland policy is that all children nine years and under cannot use, sleep or gain access to the top bunks. This determines that all Joey and Cub scouts are not allowed to use the top bunks. To be clear, the top bunk can only be used with care by a scout or persons aged 10yrs or older and playing on the top bunks by any person regardless of age is prohibited.

It is the users obligation to ensure the safe use of bunk beds whilst visiting Camp Kallaroo and although the bunk beds are compliant in all respects of the WH&S legislation in respect of the design and function, the hirer, Burleigh Heads Scout Group and the Scout Association of Australia (Qld Branch) disclaims any liability of what so ever nature in respect of the use of the bunk beds by any persons.

Note, this condition may affect the number of beds available for your booking - see How Many Can Sleep In The Bunkhouse?

Smoking Policy

As per the QBSI, Policy and Rules, smoking is not permitted within any scout buildings. We have designated a smoking area away from the campsite and activity areas and the eyes of our youth. The smoking area is outside the South Western corner of the Parker Centre adjacent to the Fire escape door. This area has a table and chairs for you to use and a Billy is hanging on the wall in place of an ashtray. All cigarette buts are to remain in the Billy until you empty the contents into the rubbish. The Billy / Ashtray is to be emptied regularly and upon your departure from the campsite.

Hirers are to familiarise themselves and their group / guests with these procedures and the location of emergency equipment provided such as fire extinguishers and hoses, Gas shut off valves, Main water supply and Electrical mains switches etc. In the event of Fire or power outages Emergency lighting will illuminate and all Fire Exits are identified by an illuminated “Green” EXIT sign above the Exit Door.

Respect our Neighbours

Our campsite is in a Residential area. This means that special consideration is to be given to how you manage your camp, communicate with members of your group and the activities that you run. Some issues that need to be considered are…

Noise

We have a Noise Curfew - 9PM to 7AM is quiet time.

Lights Out

We have a Lights Out policy of 11PM.

Campfires

We have a Quiet campfire rule after 9PM.

Games

We have a NO Games rule after 8PM. Ball games are to be supervised and special attention is to be given to keeping the balls inside the fence and away from hitting the fences as this makes a lot of noise. Also please keep ball and people out of the garden beds to avoid damage to plants an the water sprinkler system.

BBQ Area

The BBQ area is not a gathering place and the use of the BBQ is to be restricted to the hours of 7AM – 9PM.

Tents

Tents are to be erected towards the northern end of the site and away from the roadway and adjoining houses. (Adjacent to pedestrian walkway.)

Shouting

Noise travels - especially at night. If you need to shout you are too far away from the person you are communicating with – move closer or pass on a message. An emergency is the only acceptable time that shouting might occur.

Penalties For Annoying The Neighbours

If we receive complaints from the Neighbours about Noise, Bad Language or annoying and disrespectful behaviour - Your Group may forfeit the Bond paid for the Camp. So, enjoy yourself but be mindful of our neighbour’s rights to their quiet enjoyment of their home.

Remember, amongst other things a Scout is… Respectful and Considerate.
