Kingston Scout Group hosted the Big Blue Hike weekend 20 – 22 March, in the Bunyip State Forest, for Scouts wanting to complete the requirements for their Explorer (Blue) hike, a journey of at least 15 km over two days, carrying their food, clothing and camping equipment. Along the journey, and at the overnight camp, Scouts were trained and tested on Explorer Campcraft skills. The hike completed on Sunday at 12 noon, with a Parade and award presentation ceremony.
6th Melbourne’s Kenneth was our only participant, and I am very pleased to say that Kenneth was successful in completing the hike and in obtaining his Explorer Campcraft Badge. Congratulations Kenneth on an extraordinary effort! A full report will be given at our next Scout meeting. Here is a snapshot of the weekend’s activity…click image to expand thumbnails.
