1st Gordon goes to the Agooneree!

Agooneree is a camp for all Scouts and Guides and caters for special needs members. This year the NSW Agooneree was held at the picturesque Scout camp at Mt Keira on the escarpment overlooking Wollongong.

The theme was medieval – and 1st Gordon Scouts enjoyed dressing up as knights and joining in the medieval style games and sword play. As the weather fined up, 1st Gordon ran a grand game of cricket that included Scouts of all abilities – a fine reminder that everyone deserves to
participate and have fun.  We also spent a day at the Helensburgh Symbio wildlife park, had a spectacular campfire night and a banquet in the beautiful sandstone lodge.

Our thanks go to the dedicated Agooneree organising team and supporters, including the caterers and all helpers who made this a remarkable and memorable weekend.

And a big thank you to Dormouse and Kaa who once again made it possible for the scouts to enjoy a wonderful school holiday experience!
