Dear Scouts and Parents - We hope you have enjoyed your holidays and are preparred for yet another term of Scouting awesomeness. With the summer months coming on and daylight hanging around for longer, Term 4 promises to be bigger and better than before. The full program is published on the Epping Scouts web site, but here are some highlights:
First up is our Group Camp on the first weekend of term: 14 - 16 Oct at Camp Coutts. See the Group Camp notice for more information, but for the Scout Section, we are planning a bushwalk on Saturday afternoon into Heathcote National Park - bring your swimmers, if we find a swimming hole and the weather is warm, we'll jump in. On Sunday Morning, the district Rock Activities team has arranged to re-run the Scout Abseil Day activity for us that was cancelled earlier in the year.
Merv and the rest of the Sailing Team will commence Sailing courses on Saturday afternoons starting 29th October at our Meadowbank boat shed.
The next major activity for this term will be the District Wide Game on Friday Oct 28th. We have decided to cancel our regular Wed night meeting that week and encourage all Scouts to participate in this fun activity where you'll get an opportunity to meet other scouts from our district. More details will follow, but the information that we have right now is that the Wide Game will be at Meadowbank Park from 7pm - 9pm
Ventout - this is a weekend camp organised by Venturers from many districts, it is open to all Scouts and is intended to introduce Scouts to what fun things Venturers get up to. It is held on the 12th - 13th November at Camp Ku-Ring-Gai on the Hawkesbury river and features many water based activities - such as a ride in a doughnut
Canoe Hike, 3rd - 4th Dec. With the warmer weather in December, we hope to finally pull this hike off. It promises to be a great adventure and you'll have lots of fun - promise.
