Birralee 2013 – A Year in Review

Birralee Scout Group were adventurous in a large variety of activities in 2013.  Cubs participated in several camps particularly a Pack Holiday with the Theme of ‘Around the World’ at Camp Coots. Yowie Pack was involved in the Building of Billy Carts and the Billy Cart Derby while Bunyip Pack designed, built and raced Kub Kars.  The Cubs also had the opportunity to go caving and abseiling and hiking throughout the year.  There were 6 Grey Wolf recipients.

The Scouts began the year with 15 members and 2 Leaders attending Australian Jamboree 2013 in Marybourgh Queensland.  They also were involved in many camps, a canoe expedition down the Clyde River, Flying at Camden, ice blocking on the Portrait Gallery Lawns and inviting the Bearcat Response Team from the Police to visit.

The Venturers were also out and about with 2 canoe expeditions, attending Coast Venture, Dragonskin and 3 were involved in Gang Show.

As a group we participated in the Branch Water Activities Camp, and the Centenary Camp with approximately 85 from the group in attendance, Scouting the Boundary Jott hike and Birralee’s 18th Birthday Party.  We ended the year with the Cuboree with 31 cubs, 12 leaders, 4 venturers and 2 Scouts in various roles at the Cubroee.

We are all looking forward to more adventures in 2014 particularly with a Group Camp to Jindabyne in August.
