A little rain didn't put our East Ryde Cubs from having a great day out on Cockatoo Island. We explored every nook and cranny. Seagull nesting season is in full swing. The Cubs saw eggs, fluffy newborns and week old chicks.

In term 3 the Joey scouts worked hard for their Care and Share badge.

As a big part of their badgework they held a food drive in aid of North Ryde Community Aid Winter Appeal.

Carolyn form NRCA came along to collect our donations and to award the Joeys their well earned badges.

Well Done Joeys!


Many of our East Ryde Cubs had a fantastic time at the Moocooboola District Camp at Cataract Scout Park.They camping and interacting with new and old friends. Together the Cubs tackled the low ropes, Challenge Valley with its mud pits and water holes, and saw Cataract Dam as well as many other fun activities.



New comers and old hands had a fantastic time at Bents Basin this October long weekend at the annual Family Camp out. Joeys, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers, and their families all joined in. We swam, ate, walked, chatted, ate, played cricket, had water fights, ate, and whiled away the evenings by the camp fire. The marquee and communal food promoted interaction between all from 3 to 30, to ...ahem a bit older. It was wonderful to see everyone pitch in. B-R-A-V-O East Ryde families, you make a wonderful community for our kids to grow up within.
