Scouts camp out on Trunk Island
Scouts from three different groups invaded Trunk Island in Harrington Sound this week for a five-day camp.
Activities included a nature talk from David Wingate, and conservation work which involved removing invasive species, fishing, archery, a coastal clean-up, swimming and kayaking.
The scouts were also educated on the art of beekeeping from beekeeper Spencer Field.
The camp finished with the traditional campfire and the roasting of marshmallows.
Chief commissioner of scouts, Geoff Rothwell, said: “It was a good opportunity for the scouts to not only have a good time taking part in traditional scouting activities, but also the opportunity to take part in work that benefits the community.
“It is important for our young people to understand the importance of the ecosystem and the role that we play as members of that system.”
