The 25th Scouts Tasmania Cuboree was held this month. There were 600 Guides, Cubs and leaders onsite at the Lea. The Girl Guides made 3 patrols, and had an amazing time on camp, with abseiling and billy cart racing as highlights. 
Thank you to Her Excellency, The Honourable Professor Kate Warner AC, Governor of Tasmania for paying us a visit and joining in the fun!
Some of the girls are writing some reports on their time at Cuboree, so keep an eye out for those.

Lones Girl Guides' camp
At the end of last month, the Lones Girl Guides (our Tasmanian unit on the internet) had their first camp as a new unit! The girls learnt lots of new skills, from building gadgets to making food to sleeping outdoors. It was also the first time that a lot of them had met, but the group became fast friends and welcomed each other with open arms.
Other activities for the weekend included a trip to the beach, a visit to the State Guiding Archives, lots of craft and the unit's first Promise Ceremony.
