Manly State Emergency Service (SES) hosted the Cubs for a night an information and experience. The Cubs had a great time, learnt a lot & really appreciated the party pies, sausage rolls and ice creams. Thank you to Manly SES.
Cubs, Scouts and Venturers are back for the term. Check out the term programmes for more information.
We took the train up to Wondobyne, a small station where you need to ask the driver to stop as it usually skips this station. Scouts led the way for the 3 hour hike up the hill on the GNW trail and then off to the enormous Pindar cave. We met another friendly group there and had a great night under the shelter of the overhang.
The Cubs had a great night running around Ivanhoe Park zapping each other.
The scouts practiced the skills required to undertake a river crossing. Learning how to cross as a group and use their backpacks for floatation.
F/M Scouts went canyoning through a section of the Wollangambe. The walk into the canyon involved a deep descent to the river, where we inflated our lilos and surf mats before taking on the canyon, with a combination of gentle floating and scrambling over boulders. The climb back out required the scouts to show some rock climbing skills.
F/M Cubs took part in a Northern Beaches Joint Cub event at Manly Surf and Slide. 90 Cubs from 5 Scout Groups spent two hours sliding, swimming and mucking about on West Esplanade Beach Manly. A nice way to cool off after a 37 degree day.

F/M Cubs had a fishing night at Narrabeen lake with professional assistance.
