Scout Camp Cancelled

Scout Camp cancelled due to poor weather.
Apologies to all of those already packed and prepared. Also to the families who have changed what had planned this weekend for camp.
It is sad, however the thought of muddy wet tents does not excite me.

Again apologies from all the Scout Leaders

Lost Scouts!

Due to the thick scrub of Johnsons Bend & high temperatures, Wednesday nights activity has been relocated to another location, my riverbend.
This provides better shelter, less under growth and easier access if any troubles arise.

So just to re-cap
Time: 7:30 - 9:30
Where: Steven's River bend (butler's Bend see previous posts for map)
What to wear: Good quality footwear, comfortable clothing
Bring: Personal insect repellant, torch, water bottle, hat

See you all there! Don't get lost!
