Who would have thought a blend of history, knots, poles and a competitive race could be so much fun for Brooklyn Scouts ?
This week the keas learned about making crystals and had a blast mixing together our ingredients that will ‘climb’ up their cups over the coming weeks with the help of some sunshine. We also welcomed newest Kaiārahi Kayla to the troop who lead us in a series of fun games to round off the evening. Welcome Kayla!
Our beach night retreated to the hall after the ‘Southerly’ kept up delivering cold wind and rain to Princess Bay?
Our youth gave presentations on water, hypo/hyper-thermia and shelters carried out some challenges including how to dry/ warm your clothes with a rubbish bag and a candle…!?
This week we had three very special (very furry) guests along to meet our keas! After learning all about care and safety for a variety of pets our keas put their new skills to the test walking, cuddling, and practicing tricks with our three furry friends.
Scouts learnt to safely light a match (most don’t have open fires at home!?), followed by a simple candle challenge which was completed with varying degrees of speed…?. The night finished with some planning for the rest of the term.
