Out and About with Scouts - May

May was a busy time for 1st Seymour Scout Group.

For anyone interested in finding out more about us, come along for a visit.

Sections meet Monday to Friday during school term, but phone ahead first, because we might be out on an adventure.

Phone group leader Renee on 0437246377.


Joeys had an adventurous day trip to the Melbourne Aquarium.

They loved the king penguins.

It also puts size in perspective when you can fit two Joeys into the jaws of a crocodile and six into the jaws of a monstrous sized shark.

Next they made cup cakes to take to the local police station to say thank you for caring.


Cubs have worked on science and first aid badges, had a movie night and sleep over at the hall and have just come back from a Grey Wolf Hike at Whroo.

The Grey Wolf is the highest award in Cubs.

The Cub must demonstrate planning and leadership in the activity, taking at least four other Cubs with them, with Leader back up for safety.

Most of the Cub pack went and had a ball.


Scouts have had a trip to Bounce at Essendon Fields, had fire awareness and first aid emergency training before heading off on a weekend camping trip to Mansfield.

Saturday they went four-wheel driving, starting from the hut at Sheepyard Flat then on to Razorback, Tomahawk, Fry’s and Craig’s Huts.

They also hiked around Bindaree Falls and visited Mansfield Zoo, where they were able to help feed the animals having a number of close up-front experiences with some of the inhabitants.

A huge thanks to leaders Nic, Scott and Hannah for driving the troop up to such a special and beautiful part of Victoria.


Venturers have been go-karting at Chirnside Park and are working on a special farewell for Theo who will be returning to France in June.

Venturers are also welcoming a new German exchange student to the unit.

Meanwhile Rovers had a trip to Melbourne, meeting up with another crew and hitting the ice-skating rink at Docklands.

They are also preparing for Mudbash, a Rover four-wheel drive camping weekend held each year in June at Mafeking Rover Park, Caveat, the other side of Yea.
