Scouts – Easter Camp 2016

Each Easter, Scouts from Benowie District meet at Crosslands for the traditional Easter Camp.

Four days of fun and hard work keeping the campsites in perfect order. The camp is usually closed with a flour and water bomb fight – followed by a good wash (read water fight) in the river. There was perfect weather for the camp this year.

We had 3 new patrol leaders, new tents and many new faces – so we were very proud to finish in second place. Awesome work from our Scouts!

1stMCMK built a awesome entry gate to welcome visitors to the camp.

Bunnings Thornleigh – Fundraiser

Thank you to all our Families that braved the heat to help out at our Bunnings BBQ fundraiser on Sunday 14th February.

Despite the heat by 4pm most of the Sausages had been sold and a huge amount of icy cold drinks.

The group should raise around $850 from the event. The funds are being put towards camping equipment for the up coming Scout Easter Camp where the Scout Troop will attempt to defend their title as District Champions.

A small, but enthusiastic group of leader, parents and kids participated in the 2015 Relay for Life held at Rofe Park.

The Relay for Life is a 24hr walking event with attendance by local community groups and supporters. Dance acts, bands and jumping castles kept the walkers entertained.

The group raised over $250 for the event.

Easter camp is held each year at Crosslands Reserve and has a competitive element focusing on campcraft, and scout skills.

The theme the year was ‘Mexican’ and our 2 Patrols, “Hasta La Vista Amigos” came in 1st place and “Flying Tacos” came in 2nd place. The win breaks a long running streak by Waitara Scouts.

The weekend is not all hard work, lots of fun was had in the rain with ‘wide games’, and a huge flour fight, where local MP Matt Kean led the charge into battle !
