Winter Camp

The Scout Troop had a cold, wet, windy and sunny weekend at Wood’s Reserve recently for a ‘Winter Camp’. The pictures are from Saturday (a nice sunny day). They built a floating flag pole and a monkey bridge across Paddy’s River approximately 15 metres long!  Impressive!

All scouts helped construct the flag pole and bridge and everybody, including the leaders, crossed the monkey bridge –  even a passing bushwalker had a go (successfully).  It’s both challenging and fun to camp in winter and we are pleased to say that everyone packed well, and no-one reported to leaders that they had been too cold to sleep overnight.

A few scouts finished their Pioneer (Red) level badge work and 9 scouts added another two nights under canvas:  every night counts for those who are chasing the requisite 10 nights for Jamboree!
