TROOP NEWS

Welcome to 2022

Welcome back to all our Scouts and parents. We trust that you all had a pleasant festive season and a good rest after a hectic 2021. 

We are looking forward to an amazing year for 2022 and we hope that you are all looking forward to an exciting year ahead as well as we have many things planned.

We also wish to welcome all our Scouters back and we are all looking forward to making this year as exciting for the scouts as much as possible and getting all those advancements done.

SCOUTS UPDATE

Scouter Updates

The last 2 years has been a very challenging time for Scouts and Scouters alike and with the lifting of many of the lockdown regulations we will most certainly be doing a lot more Out and About in scouting with plenty of hikes, camps and district events happening this coming year. Please keep a close eye on our newsletters and dates for all our upcoming events. 

Friday Meeting

There will be a Full Uniform Scouts Meeting this Friday 14 January at the Hall.

Please ensure that you all bring along your camp uniform as well to change into after our opening parade as we will begin with a small change in patrols as well as beginning to sort out our Scout dens and camping equipment.

Past Events

Senior Scout Adventure Magaliesberg

Our Senior Scouts attended the Senior Scouts Adventure Magaliesberg from the 5th to the 9th of January and fun was had by all. please have a look at the pictures on Instagram.
