Day 10 at the 19th Bolton Centenary Camp

Today, the Scout Group visited Sidney, to explore the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre. Following a brief inspection and an hour and a half bus journey we arrived at our destination.


Scouts enjoyed learning about Jellyfish and other regional sea life, whilst others ventured further into town and visited shops, restaurants and the ever popular McDonalds.

Around 1 O clock we travelled to All Fun At Western Speedway for a bit of go-karting and baseball. One Scouter was particularly noted for his aggressive driving style after demolishing a Troop Leader in his path.


Later in the afternoon we returned to Camp Barnard for the final round of Masterchef, Fishing and Survival. Whilst Peewits, Kangaroos and Curlews set up their hammocks for the night; Owls, Swifts and the TLs got to work in the kitchen. Menus featured Pizza, Chicken and Stuffed Peppers and all three groups were commended for their efforts.

 As the three survivalist groups head out for a night under the Canadian night sky, we look forward to an Incident Hike and Baseball Match tomorrow.

    What an exciting day, first the Ocean discovery centre and then go carting in one day. I bet the survivalist groups don’t have a problem sleeping tonight. I’m exhausted reading about your action packed days. Daddy is so jealous seeing you all go carting, Bow has been racing round the kitchen in her shiny new racing car too, . Enjoy the rest of your week, I know everyone keeps saying take lots of pictures but please do, we need to share your experience.
    Love to all from The B’s xoxo
