1st Belmont Joey Scouts had an adventurous time with 1st Charlestown and 1st Warners Bay Joey Scouts at the Hunter Wetlands Sleepover. Thanks to Stuart Blanch, CEO Hunter Wetlands, Joeys learnt about mosquito fish as they went dip-netting and even managed to avoid falling in, went spotlighting and saw brush tail possums, lots of spider webs and flying foxes and had a visitor with a brush tail!
The next morning, Joeys went for a drive to see the Wetlands. Over the sleepover, Joeys made new friends, ate a lot including ice cream and pancakes with chocolate, caramel and strawberry topping and also their salad greens!
We had great fun with our buddies from 1st Belmont North Joeys playing pizza games and then making and toasting milk carton pizzas in our Care and Share program tonight. Yummy!
1st Belmont Scout Group celebrated their 90 years by bobbing apples, rope bridges, looking for Sher Khan and Baloo, first aid and bandages, mini-catapults, balloons, amazing birthday cake, sharing photos and stories with past and present youth members and leaders.
Joeys from Belmont and Warners Bay had a fun and exciting night at Belmont Fire Station, as part of their Buddy badge program.
A special welcome to our newest Joeys, Cubs, Scout and Venturers who have joined us in Term 2. We have a very exciting Term 3 with a new Joey Scout leader, Cub Scout leader and Quarter Master.
