Camp Fire Policy
The Camp Eureka Working Collective Inc. (CEWC) recognises that campfires are part of the camping experience. People enjoy sitting around a fire to keep warm and for socialising. However there is a need to minimise the impact of camp fire activities. The collection of living or dead timber for use as fire wood leads to the loss of natural vegetation and has detrimental effects on natural ecosystems. Campfires must be treated as a privilege rather than as a right. The purpose of this policy is to enable all of us to enjoy a campfire, where it is appropriate, while maintaining respect for the bush areas at Camp Eureka.
No campfires on Total Fire Banand Code Reddays, or when advised by a member of the CEWC Management Committee.
All campfires must be in a container, as consistent with State Law. The containers can be located at the back of the Kitchen.
All campfires are to be kept to a minimum size.
No rubbish is to be burnt in campfires.
Campfires must be attended by an adult at all times and extinguished when leaving them unattended.
The cutting or damaging of any standing trees or saplings on the premises is prohibited.
Please do not take the sawn or split wood from the Kitchen or Showers wood storage areas. Wood may be used from the Recreation Hut and BBQ storage areas.
Suitable wood for campfires may be found stacked in camping areas. Small amounts of fallen wood may be collected from the ground. Please leave large logs in the bush.
