Riverina Region Cub Centenary Camp a Huge Success! Print E-mail

Cub Centenary Camp Riverina 1

The Riverina Region had an awesome time celebrating 100 years of Cubs at their Regional Cub Centenary Camp at Gundagai Show Ground, from May 13-15.

130 Cubs from the Region attended the camp, which is held every year with a different theme. This particular event took 12 months to plan, and it was a huge success!

Bases included the flying fox and obstacle course, which were a big hit with the Cubs!

There were also plenty of crafty activities to do, including putting coloured rice into bottles, making mini woggle men out of paracord, and putting together a yellow '100 years of Cubs' themed scarf to mark the occasion.

From the smiles on their faces, you can see they had an absolute blast!

The Gold Boomerang Cubs also did Promise and Law, Duty to God as they planned and ran activities on the Sunday morning.

It was a great weekend that enabled the Cubs to have lots of Boomerang work signed off.

Well Done to All Scout Job Week 2016 Participants! Print E-mail



Scout Job Week 2016 has now officially closed and we'd like to congratulate all of the Scout Groups who participated in this year's event! 

Running from May 1 to June 30, Scout Groups across all Regions in NSW got out into the community and offered to do odd jobs to raise some money. It's great to see the event is still so popular after all these years.

We hope everyone reached their fundraising goals and now encourage Groups to send their Scout Job Week cards to their Region office by July 31 to receive their badges and awards.

Depending on how much you have raised as an individual, you will receive either a bronze, silver or gold badge (pictured below). For those who reach gold, also receive a gold woggle.

SJW Badges


Thank you very much for choosing to participate in Scout Job Week 2016, we look forward to doing it all again next year.

Hume Region Cubs Complete 19th Jamboree of the Trail Print E-mail


Hume Region Cubs completed the 19th Annual Jamboree Of The Trail (JOTT) on Sunday 22nd May.


JOTT is an annual day for the World Scout Movement to hike together. This year the Cubs hiked on the southern section of the Kiama Coast Walk, where they saw Whales a few times along the track.


They walked about 9km altogether (although it felt like more than that) and it was a lot of fun!

Great effort, guys!

SC&T Region Pigskin2016 Print E-mail


On April 1-3, 25 Scout Patrols from across the South Coast and Tablelands Region competed in Pigskin 2016 at the Wingello State Forest.


Over the two days, the Patrols went from one activity base to another, working in teams to complete challenges and win points.


The team with the most points, and winners of Pigskin2016, were "The Black Panthers" from 1st Bungendore. They earned a total of 1118 points from their adventures.


In second place, "altijd de beste" from 1st Jamberoo earned 1076 points.


And "The Black Widows" from 1st Bungendore, ranked third, with a total of 1063 points.


All Patrols deserve a round of applause for their efforts!

New Amateur Radio Classes On Offer Print E-mail

jota joti



JOTA JOTI 2016 is just around the corner, so why not prepare yourself for the big event by enrolling in an amateur radio course?

The NSW JOTA JOTI team is offering Scouts and Guides (aged 13+) the opportunity to obtain a foundation (or Level 1) amateur radio licence this August.

Classes of 3-6 people will run at 1st Erskine Park Scout Hall over two days on August 20-21 and by the end you'll have a nationally recognised qualification. 

Obtaining a licence will allow you to own and use amateur radio equipment, which will be very valuable once JOTA-JOTI comes around again!

If you wish to find out more or download the E1 form, visit the NSW JOTA JOTI website.

On April 8-10, up to 200 Venturers and Rovers from Crews and Units across the Sydney North Region, attended the Sydney North Region Roventure at Ingleside Scout Camp. 

The annual Venturer/Rover camp theme was "" and run completely by Normanhurst Rovers and Venturers.



Activities were all themed around social media and included physical and mental challenges such as yoga...



And working as a team to build things such as a ballista! 


Of course there was some friendly competition between the Groups, and Platabeen (1st Collaroy Plateau/2nd Narrabeen) Rover Crew were declared the winners by the end of the camp. 

Congratulations guys, we look forward to seeing what you guys come up with next year!
