started with a  short hike of approximately 4kms,  'The group split into three
teamsand took with them GPS to do  Geocaching along the dirt track to Kapilio.
Whilst they were gone the Parents Committee and leaders  prepared  the food
which was ready at 1.30pm. After lunch it was time to relax or join in with play
some games.  Some joined in on the volley ball pitch for a match, others played
football and badminton.  It was a fabulous way to get to know more about each
other and enjoy the cooler weather up the mountians.  What a great end to the
scouting year.  Thank you to everyone for your support, we look forward to more
such events in the next scouting year.  We wish you all an enjoyable summer.
