|A Fun Easter Long Weekend at Dragon Skin 2016|
Story by Jessica Andrews
From the 25th to the 28th of March, Dragon Skin 2016 "Colours" took place at Belanglo State Forest and had over 850 Venturers (forming 182 teams) from all over New South Wales and interstate regions competing to take out that much wanted first place title.
Rovers, Venturers and Leaders joined together for an Easter weekend filled with exciting activities run by Rover crews all throughout the forest, ranging from construction and physical challenges, to mental and sensory deprivation challenges.
With everyone watching the weather around the clock, a sunny weekend made it easier for teams to get amongst the good vibes and develop their leadership skills, gain confidence and most importantly; have fun. Dragon Skin 2016 "Colours" had the largest attendance in over 20 years and planning is already under way to make Dragon Skin 2017 another great success!
A massive B-R-A-V-O to Binyulka Venturer Unit, Northern Territory for taking out first place for the event.
Dragon Skin 2016 wouldn't have been such a huge success without the help of Rovers and Leaders taking time off to set up, organise and plan these creative activities for the kids, so thank you to all and we are already eager for next year and the great times ahead.
