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.

Designing a face for their jack-o-lanterns went well with some pretty spooky results. The mummy race was hilarious (who knew toilets rolls has so many other uses). […]
Cuboree 2017 was a roaring success. 7 of our cubs went along for four days of glorious fun. I want to thank our Cub leaders, Akela, Bagheera and Baloo and our parent helper Dion Cohen for all they did to make sure our cubs had a blast at Cuboree. A big thank you to John […]
Last week the cubs slept over at the hall. They made their own pizzas from English muffins, watched a movie and just had a great fun night together. Thanks to Akela, Baloo and Hathi for organising the night and to Kieran the Cub Leader from Bailey Reserve for coming at the last minute to help […]
What a great way to finish term 3 and welcome the New Year. Scouts met at Bounce Inc last night for 2 hours of BGT. (Bouncy Great Times). Personally I have a phobia of trampolines.. I can’t help it, they just always make me jump! On the way out I met the chap who manages […]

This is an annual meeting where we get to here how Scouting is going in our district which covers Glen Eira and Stonnington council areas, roughly.
