We have had an active past couple of terms. Here are some photos from our Scout nights. We have undertaken leadership training sessions, baking challenges, team challenges, been visited by leader from the Netherlands (who had never witnessed such a youth lead activity night!), invested new Leaders and Scouts, awarded many badges, listened to the experiences our two Scouts had at World Jamboree in America, fundraised for Jamboree, etc.!
We have a very happy Kea Leader! The last swing was retired when the new acoustic ceiling was installed – which was a number of months ago – and every night since the Keas have asked when the new swing they’d be getting a new swing!? We now have a deluxe upgraded new model capable of taking even the biggest kids!
Our ‘Pre-Jamboree’ settling in camp went very smoothly. Brooklyn Scouts are combining with Karori West Scouts. We are now firmly in the grips of the new youth leading model, so it took twice as long to put up the tents than might have been expected!? The youth undertook team building activities (planned by Scouts from the six Troops that make up the Wellington Jamboree Contingent) and designed our gateway for the campsite. It was noted by a passing observer that we appeared to be the most relaxed Troop – so that bodes well for Jamboree!
