Last weekend 45 of us camped out at Kaitoke Regional Park. It was amazing, and the weather played along so that our youth (and adults) got the full experience. We all worked together to set up camp, prepare meals, clean up, play games, go for a hike, swim in the river, play the X (S) games, cook on an open fire, and pack camp up, even coming back to the scout hall to unload all the equipment. And the big kicker was that we all had fun doing it.
Thank you. Many of us faced challenges and had the support to succeed from peers/Kaiārahi/parents, collecting lifelong skills along the way – ka pai.
Our Scouts busy fundraising to help get to the South Island Staveley camp. The Brooklyn Scout Group have 18 Scouts attending the Mid Cantebury Adventure Camp at Staveley from Saturday 2nd to Saturday 9th January 2021.
Tonight we ventured into the town belt and (with limited resources) constructed bivvy’s. Luckily it was an unusually mild evening and as there was a limited water supply (collected from a local creek), their effectiveness as shelters was not really tested!
Keas discovered magnetism, the science of attract and repel and the incredible block connecting system (Lego!)
In typical Brooklyn Scout group fashion the serious adult reports were presented to the AGM in a youth inspired way.
Enjoy the show, note the words on the screen was all that was supplied, everything else came from the youth.
