1st Belmont Scout Group have been incredibly busy! Our Joeys are making friends and learning while our cubs have made great progress on their badgework and working as a team. Our scouts are preparing themselves for Corroboree in the summer holidays and Jamboree in 2019! Here are just some of the places we have visited as a group in just over a term and a half! The Library, Bunnings, Rock Climbing and even more days out left in the term!
Our cubs and joeys had a combined night where we went to the library to complete a scavenger hunt, read some stories and learn about our local Library and how to use it!
We also attended the Bunnings Father’s Day night! We ate sausage sandwiches, saw a magic show, had our faces painted and made presents for people we care about!
We’ve also had a lot of fun climbing things! The Joeys showed their fearlessness and conquered fears and personal best in every climb!
And we finished last term with Wide Games in the dark!!
We still have 4 scout nights left in the YEAR with even more group activities planned! See you all next week for more fun and adventure!
With the weather so changeable this week I wasn’t sure we would get to the beach but the weather was perfect, not a cloud in the sky and a balmy evening for those of us running around like mad things. Its nights like this that reminds me why I love being a cub leader. The fun the children had just being kids, making friends and racing around enjoying the fun of the beach all to themselves.
The Joeys were in tents for the recent Lake Macquarie District Joey Camp at Glenrock, dressing up as indians for the festivities – the leaders were the cowboys.
Some of the Belmont Scout Leaders came down and put up the rope bridge with the help of some of the parents and it proved to be a big hit with the Joeys from all over the district.
Among the activities during the camp were lassoing the cows, horseshoe tossing, archery, dream catchers, a visit to the beach, dancing, storytelling and Nerf gun battles. The big hit of the weekend, the group drumming sessions, gave permission – indeed encouragement – to Joeys to make a lot of noise resulting in a Very Loud Experience.
By the end of the camp we had lots of weary Joeys (and parents) heading for home and looking forward to the next camp.
