Tonight was special for me as Maya joins the 10th Caulfield Scouting community. My father Ralph invested Maya’s dad Andrew into 4th Bennettswood in the late 70’s, as the photo below attests. So it was with great pride that I could be part of Maya’s investiture into Scouting last night, just prior to our bike ride […]
The air activities badge day was run by Scouts Victoria for Scouts of all levels of badge work – Pioneer, Explorer and Adventurer! I was really lucky to get a place because the bookings fill up fast – it’s popular and they only run it a few times a year. The day started with a […]
Scouts and Cubs combined at the beach this week to take advantage of summer daylight savings. Sascha and Jess ran a fun program at Elwood beach that got everyone working in Patrols. Scouts helped Cubs with lashings and other knots and from what I could see everyone had a great (albeit windswept) night!
I’d like to welcome Daniel and Hugo to the fold. Both boys knew their Scout Law and Promise and said they would live by those gold standards. So they received their badges, scarves, caps and after an almighty WOOOF they joined their new Six and the night began with learning all the basic Scout knots. […]
As is the annual custom, Scouts finished 2017 with a bang at Sidetracked. Everyone drove a fast and furious go-kart session followed by a ultimate Laserforce battle. Who won? (apart from Matt and Tristan who have clearly spent too much time playing Laserforce), we are all winners!
Two new Scouts joined our group last night. Leah and Jacob hadn’t attended Scouts before this term and loved it so much they were invested last night. We welcome both into our group as we do to their respective families. Both families have ties back to scouting. Jacob’s grandmother was a Guide leader in our […]
Last weekend our Scouts attended a major Scouting event, the 42nd Gilweroo at Bay Park campsite in Mount Martha. The weather could not have been better with mild nights and warm days, and all the torrential rain that hit Melbourne just gliding past us! Out Scouts participated is so many activities over the weekend, from […]
Move over Hunger Games. Bowling Games has arrived. 10th Caulfield was hungry alright! Maybe not for bowling but they did give it a red-hot go as they duked it out with 15th Brighton over Ultimate Supremacy of the much sought after Bowling Chalice of Doom*. And the winner was…. Scouting of course. *we must […]
Joel Grunbaum and Leah Hain of 28th Glen Eira Venturer Unit were formally presented their Queen Scout awards at a ceremony at Government House over the weekend just past. We are super proud of their achievements and hope they had a wonderful celebration amongst all the other recipients and their families.
