Welcome to Term 3!

We have another exciting term of activities ahead for you! We're carrying-on our winter format of fortnightly weekend activities (usually on a Saturday afternoon) as we feel we can provide a more stimulating program this way.

This term, we'll start on Saturday 25 July with a bushwalk to Booroomba Rocks. Later, we'll do another walk along the Murrumbidgee River! We're going to do some geocaching where we'll learn to use compasses and GPS (and find tasty treats hidden around the place), we'll make and fly some kites and we'll visit Cotter Dam! We'll be learning and having lots of fun as we go.

As well, there is the Family Camp over the weekend of 8-9 August at Cabramurra (and aren't we glad for the recent snow!), the South Region Joeys Campfire at Camp Cottermouth (Friday 31 July), and for those who got in early enough, there's also the Reach for the Stars astronomy night at Mt Stromlo Observatory on Saturday 15 August.

During the term, we'll progress our badgework and hopefully we'll all come away with a new Challenge Badge!

If you are interested in joining us, we welcome new members. Please email joeys@macarthurscouts.org.au or phone Numbat at 0414920097.
