Bundoora Scout Group held our end of year group camp on the 6th, 7th and 8th of December at the Bundoora Scout Hall with all sections.
Friday evening saw everyone pitch in to set up tents and prepare a BBQ dinner. Followed by kids, big and little, bouncing around on the jumping castle with a movie before turning in.
Early Saturday morning we boarded a bus, train and tram to the Shrine of Remembrance on St Kilda Road in Melbourne. On arrival we were greeted by our guide Barry who gave the group a very personal tour of the building and surrounds. We were also thankful to be able to invest our newest Joey member Blake and award the Scouts Pioneer Cord (Red) to Will in the Crypt beneath the Sanctuary. On return to our hall, and after some more bouncing, we all enjoyed a roast dinner prepared by Mang (Sarah) in our amazing new kitchen.
Sunday morning everyone pitched in again to pack up tents after breakfast, before heading home (to catch up on sleep).
Many thanks to; our Shrine of Remembrance guide Barry, Eagle’s (Kirsty) awesome planning, and our leaders Akela (Hamish), Bagheera (Peter), Kangaroo (Melissa), Mang (Sarah), Platypus (Sue), and our group leader Rafiki (Chris).
