Wild West

The Fall Skills Camp takes place annually at Camp Barnard, and is widely recognised as one of the major Scouting events of the year. This camp aims to provide participants with a unique and diverse learning experience, with several stations relevant to Scouting. Unlike Spring Challenge, Fall Skills is geared to be a learning experience, where Scouts will practise and perfect their skills over a three day time period. 


This year our theme was Wild West, bringing alive the spirit and grit of the 17th to 20th century in the midwest. Throughout the weekend, Scouts took part in several stations of vital Scouting skills, along with challenges to promote further learning, teamwork and fun. Stations were run by Venturer and Rover volunteers, promoting friendly competition and performance.
