6th PA Camp

PERTH WA, DEC 1977-JAN 1978 (600+ Campers)

“Westward Ho” featured on the advertising brochures for the 6th PAC with Boys and Officers travelling by air, rail and road, some Companies being away for five weeks.
The camp continued on a familiar theme with on-site activities, tours to Perth city, Rottnest Island, heaps of swimming, canoeing and amazing heat! Towards the end of camp, the temperature reached 47 degrees Celsius.

As Boys travelled to the various parts of Perth, they invited girls to the Camp Open Day. The camp-site at Maida Vale was on the outskirts of Perth in a then semi-rural area, with no buses back after 1pm so many of the girls had to be driven back to their own area by the Camp Committee.
