The weather was 34 degrees when Scouts sallied forth at 6.30 am bound for the 2017 Scout Corroboree at Lostock (on the Paterson River near the Barrington Tops).
Accompanied by the troop mascot R2-D2, R2-D2 made sure that no Scout (male or female) would be left behind…making plenty of C-3PO jokes as the Scouts embarked the bus.
This year’s Corroboree has a movie theme and the Broken Bay Scouts as part of their Troop has a Star Wars theme (in case you haven’t already gathered). The Gateway to their camp will be an AT-AT. Some Patrol Names include: “The Jawas”, “The Tusken Raiders”, and “Storm Troopers” with even tents being named after Star Wars planets such as Naboo and Kashyyyk.
We bid the Scouts a wonderful time at Lostock whilst they engage in the traditional activities such as kayaking, swimming, as well as an overnight bivouac and hike.
Looking forward to all the stories guys upon your return!
A big “B-R-A-V-O-O-O” to our wonderful leaders that have accompanied them!
