Scouts: Term 1, 2016

For Term 1,  2016, we mainly focused on the Citizenship badge, with other fun things thrown in as well. A rafting night on Haggis’s dam where we built our own raft, as well as lighting fires and cooking sausages was a great start to the term. We cooked pikelets on candle stoves, PLs ran a games night, we held a law and promise night and several nights of first aid.

We were active in the community participating in Clean Up Australia day and manning gates at Steamfest.

Several Scouts attended BP’s birthday bash at Speers Point Park,  4 PLs and APLs attended the Scout Leadership course and Emu Patrol visited Newcastle Fire station.

Scouts: Term 1 2015

During Term 1, 2015, we focused on Campcraft badge. Some Scouts went on a challenging hike in the Blue Gum Forest, Blue Mountains and many of us finished off the term with investitures and a night hike at Mt Sugarloaf. We also participated in Clean Up Australia Day, had the Lower Hunter Venturers drop by for a night, raised awareness of Scouts by making mini-catapults at a Bunnings Community Night and helped out with traffic control at Steamfest.

Our last night was an informal night at Flip Out Trampolining at Thornton.
