Scouts climb­ing to new heights

Chinchilla News - - LIFE | OUR COLUMNISTS -

WHAT a busy week! Last Thurs­day night, our fu­ture Ven­turer Scouts hosted a very suc­cess­ful movie pre­miere of Juras­sic World: Fallen King­dom at the Chin­chilla Cin­ema. Well done to Tayla, Katie, Corey, Josh and Adam for your hard work in or­gan­is­ing this event. What a boost to your bank ac­count to start off your new sec­tion.

Over the week­end, we had one of our lead­ers travel down to Stan­thorpe to start his level two ab­seil­ing in­struc­tor train­ing. Ded­i­ca­tion was shown to scout­ing when the out­side tem­per­a­ture was -4.6 de­grees and the group were ab­seil­ing down the lo­cal cliff faces.

Our Cub Sec­tion had a day out on Sun­day and at­tended a Pack Coun­cil. They have now planned their ac­tiv­i­ties and events for the last half of 2018. Well done to the Cubs.

This week saw the last of scout­ing for this term. The Joey Scouts made bath bombs to sell at the fete, Cubs did leather-work mak­ing wog­gles and Scouts had a board games night and a Mex­i­can din­ner in­side due to the weather. Much fun had by all.

What a great term, ab­seil­ing, ca­noe­ing, camp­ing, bush walk­ing, knot ty­ing, games, craft and badge work. Thank you to the lead­ers, adult helpers and our par­ent net­work for pro­vid­ing such ac­tiv­i­ties and ad­ven­tures for our lo­cal youth.

2018 marks the 80th an­niver­sary of Scouts in Chin­chilla. There­fore, on July 21, we will be host­ing a fete and open day for all mem­bers of our com­mu­nity. If you would like to have a stall or have any mem­o­ra­bilia that we can bor­row for the day to dis­play, please con­tact Leanne on 0408 205 750. Un­til next time. Yours in Scout­ing, King­fisher
