Scouting Sunrise – June 2008

A gaggle of Joeys, Cubs and Scouts headed into Sydney city to celebrate 100 years of scouting in Australia.

Tar and Feather Night – June 2008

The last night of each term is always known for its FUN and the end of Term 2 lived up to its reputation! After constructing the rope and pine pole bridge, each of patrols had to get across whilst being pelted with flour bombs, water bombs and shaving foam. For some reason some of the scouts encroached a lot closer when the leaders had a go at crossing! Wait ’til next term and we will get our own back!

Scout Leadership Course – 28-29 June 2008

Region Camp Gathering – 6-9 June 2008

Check out a video of the weekends fun below

Over 30 of our Scouts, Leaders, Cubs and even some Joeys headed South to Cataract Park to enjoy a weekend of Camping and fun along with 800 other Scouts from all round the South Metropolitan Region and what an excellent time they had. Abseiling and flying foxes presented lots of adventure and excitement along with many of the other activities enjoyed by all our Scout members. The campfires and sing songs were enjoyed by all.

Tyler achieved a double whammy this weekend when he made his promise to be a Scout and then backed it up with the “Best Campcraft” prize for the weekend. Excellent work Tyler. Plus well done Cameron B and Vivien who both won the “Best Scouting Attitude” Awards for their positive and dynamic involvement throughout the whole weekend. Congrats to all those who did the whole weekend and have now qualified for the “3 nights under canvas” ready for Jamboree 2010.
