This year’s Cubilee 2017 was Jungle theme and was held at Kelmscott Senior High School.
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.
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.
The Scouts went to Serpentine Airfield and held their Troop Aeroplane Camp. After arriving Friday night, they set up their tents, dining shelters and making a campfire. Sitting around the campfire having fun.
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!!!
The scouts are out and about on this fantastic sunny day in Riverton canoeing.
Lots of fun to have in the water.
Today, Bibra Lake Scout’s are supporting McHappy Day by helping out at McDonalds Bicton. McHappy Day is a fundraiser to support Australian families with seriously ill children. The donations received help Ronald McDonald House Charities provide a place for these children and their families to recover, relax, and play right next door to the hospital.
Well done to the Scouts who have helped out today to support this great cause for our community.
Campwest is a tri-annual week long camp for Scouts and Girl Guides that is held in the September/October school holidays. It is a camp filled with a great range of activities and provides our Scouts the opportunity to work in Troops using the Patrol system. A camp like this gives our scouting youth many opportunities to learn new skills as well as develop and build on skills that they are taught during weekly programming. They catch up with old friends, make many new ones, and are able to step up to different challenges that take them out of their comfort zones. This is all done with the support of their Patrols, Patrol Leaders, Assistant Patrol Leaders along with Leaders, Venturers and the many volunteers that are there supporting them.
Bibra Lake Scout Group had 6 Scouts attend Campwest and they all had a great time.
Great activities including pioneering/construction, high ropes, segway, crate climbing, abseiling, frap tent activities, orienteering, geocaching, lazer tag, tunnels, frisbee golf, confidence course, challenge course and much more. Campwest 2017 was a fantastic success and an exhausting week of loads of adventure and fun for all!

On Friday 15th September, 5 Scouts set off on a 34km Green Cord hike on the Bibbulmun Track. Kai, with the assistance of the Scout Leaders, planned and organised this hike, as part of his Green Cord requirements.
The Green Cord Hike is a challenge for scouts as it is an independent hike but the leaders are close by in case they are needed. Well done Kai at organising a great hike for the Scouts.
