In November, 1st Albion Park Scouts braved unseasonal cold weather to embark on adventure of a lifetime to Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko. 21 Scouts, 5 Leaders and 2 Adult Helpers packed food, gear and lots of enthusiasm for their weekend road trip down south, where they enjoyed a good old-fashioned snow ball fight, spotted frogs and fish in surrounding ponds, and powered their way through the snow to hike up to the Summit of Mt Kosciuszko.

After a well-deserved night’s sleep, the Troop headed off to the Yarrangobilly Caves, where they were mesmerised by the rock formation’s natural archways, spotted kangaroos and joeys and enjoyed a short swim in the thermal pools.

BRAVO to all the Scouts who took part in the camp, and a special thank you to the Leaders and Helpers who dedicated their time and effort to organising this trip of a lifetime!
