1st Gordon Scouts joined Killara troop for a weekend of canoeing with SWASH in Woolwich in early February.
Both days were hot and sunny and the Scouts were kept busy practicing paddling, performing rescues and developing their water skills.
Scouts learned about water safety and the theory side of canoeing and this was followed by an assessment test.
Everyone enjoyed the races at the conclusion of the course – paddling backwards had everyone cheering each other on! It was a fabulous weekend and all the Scouts were awarded their level 2 canoeing – well done, good effort by all.
We are looking forward to planning some canoeing trips later this year.
Apologies that they have only just gone up but better late than never. We look forward to seeing you at our Cubs and Scouts Family Day on the 28th November at North Head Artillery Museum. Please RSVP Stephen Dwyer by Wednesday 24th November if you’d like to come on the tour of North Fort starting at 11:30am.

After two weeks of practice our scouts got up extra early this morning and built two rafts which they raced at Narrabeen Lakes. They planned their race, competed well and they DOMINATED! Congratulations everyone and special thanks to the leaders Phil Colebourn and Stephen Dwyer for dedication above and beyond (again). More photographs can be found here.
