What We’ve Been Up To

Beaver Masters District Outdoor Adventures

Beaver Masters District recently participated in an Outdoor Adventure day where Cub Scouts got the chance to try new things and to challenge themselves. 53 Cub Scouts attended the day where they participating in abseiling, archery and a challenging obstacle course. They also learnt about the local indigenous historical site and a youth from the Scout section taught them about the grinding grooves and the threats that animals face in the local habitat through a wide game. Beaver Masters run a District activity once each term to encourage the Cub Scouts to enjoy activities while mixing with Cub Scouts from other groups, and to engage in an active program. The Cub Scout reflections of their day involved words such as ‘the best’, ‘lots of fun’ and ‘when can we abseil again?’

Far North Region Joey Scouts & Cub Scouts had a Hop’n’Howl’n great time!

Over 170 Far North Region Joey Scouts & Cub Scouts descended on Barabadeen Campsite for the bi-annual Hop’n’Howl camp.

Joey Scouts and Cub Scouts had a fantastic time completing lots of movie themed activities on Saturday, with bases themed on The Amazing Race, Finding Nemo, Indiana Jones, Spk Kids, Alice in Wonderland and many others. The leaders had just as much fun theming their bases with all of them in character!

Saturday night featured an outdoor movie and with STEM activities dominated Sunday morning.
Congratulations to all of the Far North Region Leaders for putting together a fantastic activity camp!
