Mountain Rangers

Do you enjoy strenuous hiking in the mountains?  

You can join the Staff as a Mountain Ranger and pay Staff rates to hike in the Cederberg mountains. There are a number of roles the Mountain Rangers play from accompanying a Patrol of less experienced participants to medical evacuations.

Base Leaders and Base Staff

Base Leaders and Base staff are encouraged to have a look at the ratings and see how bases were rated by the Scouts. Staff are reminded that the ratings are not intended to be a competition and no "outright base winner" is ever declared. The ratings are intended to tell the Adventure organisers and staff what was good and therefore could be repeated and where there is room for improvement. In addition to the ratings, comments by Scouts and Mountain Rangers are included with the Adventure organisers' responses in many cases.

Who may participate

Scout Patrols where all Scouts are over the age of 15 (barring very exceptional circumstances) but not yet turned 18 at the start of the Adventure, qualify to enter. Scouter Patrols where all adults are over the age of 18 are welcome to enter too.
