Scouts: Term 2 2015

In Term 2, we had a Masterchef Italian night, learnt how to tell time and direction by the stars, played lots of fun games, did messy science experiments and took part in Region Rally.

We learnt about taking care of the environment, constructed structures, and had LaserTag come to us. We used tomahawks, built fires, and invited the cubs along to share in our campfire – complete with skits and smores.

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.

Scouts: Term 2 2014

In Term 2, Scouts focused on the Construction badge.

Weekly activities included a games night, food preparation and packing for Region Rally, building and racing chariots, campfire and skits, rope bridge creation, flagpole building and ten pin bowling.

We had a combined excursion with Joeys and Cubs to Fort Scratchley in Newcastle, and toured the tunnels (on a cold, windy day!)

Several Scouts also helped at a working bee at Jubilee Street Hall for Job Week.

Scouts and Leaders also formed the colour party for the Hunter & Coastal Region Scout Council at Paterson Park.
