Region Scouting Day

Today Billy went along to a Region Scouting event called GAS (Gather All Sections) - a day for Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers from around our region.  Some packs will be camping overnight, but our pack just went along for the day.  It was held at Glenrock Scout camp - an area of the Glenrock Conservation Area that the Scouts own.  Its in a beautiful setting - it opens onto the beach, with a tidal lagoon running beside it and surrounded by bush.

And what a full-on day it was.


Inflatable slides

Giant Jenga

Giant checkers
Giant shoes - How am I supposed to walk in these?
Flying fox

Rock-climbing wall

Tired but happy boy!

There was also a mud course (what a shame we hadn't taken a spare set of clothes!), a rope bridge, bungee trampolining (luckily he didn't want to wait for this one - the wait was over an hour!), catapults and a few other activities that I can't remember.

Well done and thank you to all the leaders and volunteers that work their bums off to provide such fun for the kids!
