About this Event

MSA Camps and Events is a volunteer leadership program that provides Monash students with an opportunity to meet other students prior to their first day on campus. The events we run are fun, inexpensive and accessible, with the aim of providing safe spaces where students can meet other students, who they may never have bumped into otherwise.

We welcome all new and returning Monash students (Domestic, International, Exchange students) from all Monash Campuses, as well as returning students who wish to take part.

FAQ

Will I be expected to do all the challenges? No. We will never expected you to do anything you don’t want to do. It’s always a choice. 

Prizes? Hek yes there will be prizes.

Can I choose which team I am in? Hek yes you can, but there will be limited places per team. You will be able to choose when registering. 

Can I just go to the Scav Hunt and go home? Yes, but we expect you to go to the picnic for the winner announcements and then you can go, this shouldn’t go longer over 1:45pm.

What should I bring? Great question. So happy you asked.

  • Positive attitude, keenness to meet new people
  • Myki (public transport card)
  • Comfortable Shoes, you will be walking, speed walking and potentially jogging, depending on the intensity of your team
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Water bottle, you will get thirsty
  • Snacks, you might get hungry
  • Lunch or money for lunch, we will eat lunch together at the picnic
  • Something to share at the picnic

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? Nope

Can a non-Monash friend come? Yes, but we do have limited spaces for non-Monash people on the Scavenger Hunt. If you can, this would be a better experience if you came on your own, but we understand that it might be easier with a buddy :)

Toilets?  Picnic area was chosen, so that toilets were only a short walk away (https://goo.gl/maps/sVL7dkWnLMv)

Proudly presented by the MSA Orientation Camps & Events Team

Anything else? There will be secret stops worth loads of points :D
