A fun filled day full of tonnes of activities for the cub scouts.

After lunch, thanks to our new leader in training Chikai, Bibra Lake Cubs managed to do the farm tour and also the sheep shearing presentation.

After this the cubs continued their afternoon of adventure trying to complete as many activities as possible.

Well done to all the leaders and volunteers that made this day amazing.  Also to WASP who made an amazing rope bridge with a Jungle theme.

Joey Nerf Wars – Halloween

The Joey Scouts continued their tradition of their annual Halloween Nerf Wars against some of our Venturers.  The Joeys dressed in Halloween costumes and were armed with their Nerf arsenal (and of course safety glasses), split into two teams and the aims of the wide game to capture the Venturer or Joey Flag.

Our Venturer, Matt was attacked by Joey Scouts and Princess Platypus had difficulty shooting anyone as her crossbow malfunctioned.

Lots of fun halloween/Nerf fun had by all.

On Saturday morning, Bob Grimstead gave all our scouts a great rundown in the features of aircraft then they were fortunate enough to be invited into a members hangar where our scouts were able to climb over vintage operational world war one and two aircraft.

 

In the afternoon, he put on an amazing aerobatics show for us, full of amazing feats. We were all amazed at the brilliant flying skills displayed.

The Scouts cooked their dinner and dessert, played a wide game and roasted marshmallows on the campfire then bed.

In the morning it was breakfast and packup of tents and dining shelters while the Scouts got the opportunity to fly in a plane and the DFES helicopters were practicing their dump and run operations.

 

Scouts now rule the skies and the land!!!

CTAS Camp – Scouts and older cubs

On 19-21 May 2017,  the scouts and the older cubs went on a CTAS camp.  CTAS stands for “cutting the apron strings” and was named this by one of our historical leader who believed that cubs needed an introduction to the patrol system and camping to prepare them for linking to the Scouts Section.

As the cubs are introduced to the patrol system and working in a team with a patrol leader this camp was designed to provide them with this learning.

It was also a camp full of adventure.  It was held at Manjedal and a full day of adventurous activities.  They started their day off at the giant swing.  Full harnesses and safety was provided by experienced adventurous activity Scouting instructors.  The kids had fun hoisting their scout/cub colleagues up into the air and they were released.

Then it was onto crate stacking.  After lunch it was onto archery and then finally the tunnels.  The day was finished with a scouting gourmet lovely mushroom risotto and homemade (scoutmade) rissoles.

In the morning, Turtle got to try out his new pancake mixer invention for bulk scouting pancake mix.  Then onto a campfire making competition.

A fun packed adventure weekend for all.  Everyone was exhausted and parents reported many a cub/scout passed out in their car on the trip home.

Canoeing

Bibra Lake Scout Group has leaders that are able to take the scouts on adventurous activities like canoeing.  Turtle the scout leader takes every opportunity possible to take the scouts on canoeing activities.  In October, the scouts went canoeing on the river.  Also, in November on group camp all the sections of scouts got to do canoeing activities and the scouts also had another camp at Dwellingup and went canoeing.

The scouts love every opportunity they get to do canoeing.
