Dural Scout’s Boat Hike

Scout Boat Hike 2023 022 Dural Scout’s Boat HikeDural Scout Emily Symons is working her way towards achieving the Australian Scout Award (formerly Medallion).

This is the highest level badge a member of the Scout Section can earn. To receive the Australian Scout Award a scout must complete a number of milestones and projects, a Leadership course and lead other scouts in a 3-day, 2-night Adventurous Journey.

To achieve the requirements for her Adventurous Journey Emily recently led three fellow scouts on a 3-day boat hike. In Emily’s own words:

“We set out on the first morning at 6:30am from Berowra Waters in a tinny propelled by an outboard motor. By 7:30 we arrived at Twin Beaches and set up camp on the shore. We built a campfire where we later cooked our dinner before retiring for the night.

The next morning after breakfast we went for a swim and built a rope swing for fun. At 10:30 we left Twin Beaches and headed up the river to Marramarra, where we spent some time exploring and found a nice little creek and constructed another rope swing.

In the morning we left Marramarra and headed back to Berowra Waters, stopping at Twin Beaches for lunch. Next time I would double check the tide charts before setting out, as there is no phone reception at Marramarra.”

Dural Scout Group has vacancies now for Girls and Boys from 5 to 25 years. Joeys (5yo), Cubs (8yo), Scouts (12yo) and Venturers (16yo).
