Scout Training Schedule for June Holidays

Dear Scouts,

The next major event for the scouts will be our Annual Campfire, which will be held on the 22nd July 2017. Our troop will be inviting scouts from other schools to our campfire, and your son / ward will be required to plan out a programme for them, and prepare the necessary logistics for the campfire. This is usually the time for the scouts to showcase their talents, and display the skills they have learnt during their scouting journey in St. Gabriel’s. 

The training sessions in June and July will be focused primarily on the preparation for the campfire. The sessions are mostly held in the afternoon, to facilitate the attendance of the venture / rover scouts who have graduated in previous years.
