Kama Scout Group

Kama Scout Group is a vibrant group active in many fields of scouting.  We offer scout programs for Joeys, Cubs, Scouts and Venturers.  Our leaders are keen, friendly, talented people whose interests and abilities cover a wide scope of useful skills including hiking, camping, skiing, caving, archery, canoeing/kayaking, land-care, construction and more.  We participate in exciting branch and national events such as Cuborees, Jamborees and Venturers, and international scouting opportunities are regularly available.  In addition we generate a great range of programs in-house for Kama youth.

Cubs’ Nelligan Camp

Whilst the weather was less than perfect, our Cubs had a great camp at Nelligan.  The highlights were Special K’s Banana Bread and gold-panning at Old Mogo Town.  A great support team of parents and leaders saw everything run smoothly.  What a year 2014 has been in our Cub Section:  three great camps (Cuboree, Cotter and Nelligan) along with a cracking range of activities in between.

A Queen’s Scout is awarded-Update

And updating this post… this afternoon we had our traditional afternoon tea at the Kama Hall, attended by Simone’s friends and family and leaders past and present.  A great way to round out acknowledgement of Simone’s QS achievement, and her time as a scouting youth.  All the best for what comes next in your life Simone!

Flying over Canberra

A big group (36 cubs, scouts and leaders) spent the afternoon at Canberra Airport to enjoy a joy flight over Canberra with the extraordinary team from the NSW Scouts Air Activities Centre (based at Camden).  I could not be more proud of the patience and behaviour of our Kama youth.  It was a long wait for everyone’s turn to come around.  But worth it!  More pictures on the Friends of Kama Facebook page.
