On 11th November 2018, Bibra Lake Scout Group participated in the City of Cockburn RSL Sub-Branch Remembrance Day March and Service at the Hamilton Hill Memorial.
A representative from each of the youth sections presented the wreath on the memorial at the Remembrance Day Service. Lest we forget!
On 3rd November 2018, the Cubs went to the annual event Cubilee. Cubilee is a fun filled day of various activities. This year’s Cubilee theme was Super Heroes.
Bibra Lake Scout Group Scouts and Leaders worked with the WASP team to build the rope bridge for the cubs to enjoy at Cubilee 2018.
Lots of fun was to be had on high ropes, rockclimbing wall and many various activities to keep the Cubs amused. As usual it was an awesome day!
On 17th October 2018, the Bibra Lake Scout Group celebrated one of our Scouts, Kai Mayers who completed all the requirements for the highest achievement in Scouts, the Australian Scout Medallion.
The Scouts and Leaders built a very special chariot for Kai to be carried by the other scouts to the ceremony area.
The ceremony was conducted by Gilligan (Douglas Latter), along with the other Scout Leaders including Heather (Heather Stanley), Turtle (Justin Bloomfield), Joker (Matthew Hamilton), Acorn (Andrew McPhail) and Dr Gumnut (Meredith Guthrie). Special guests included City of Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett, Viper (Carl Daggers) Branch Commissioner of Scouts and local parliamentary ministers. Kai also invited Nutter who was a leader from his Jamboree 2016 Troop.
On 13th – 14th October 2018, the Scouts went on their Aeroplane Camp to Serpentine Airfield where they checked out many of the planes and got loads of information about planes from the pilots.
On 15th September 2018, two of our scouts joined with another scout group to go Abseiling. This was a great day and the weather was perfect for a fun filled Abseiling adventure.
The Scouts had an awesome time.
On Sunday 24th June, Scorpion patrol held an activity of raft making and canoeing at Champion Lakes.
The patrol had a great time and the weather was great.
After they constructed their raft they tested it out on the water.
Then they went canoeing.
It was a great patrol activity and great organising. The scouts all went home exhausted and had an amazing day in the sun on the water.
On 23rd June 2018, the Joeys and Cubs from Bibra Lake joined with many other Joeys and Scouts from other groups in Western Australia and went on an adventure to Whiteman Park – JOEY CUB DAY 2018 – OUR ADVENTURE OUR JOURNEY was the theme.
With some amazing activities around the theme of travel, the Joeys and Cubs split off into patrols and made their way around the park on trains, trams, vintage buses (MTT) and explored museums and Scout Heritage Centre stall. They also did other activities such as Rover 100 year obstacle course, apple slinkies, STEM, UFO biscuit making and construction/rope making.
It was a fun adventure and many were exhausted by the end of the day. Thanks goes to the amazing organises of this large event.
On 16th June 2018 all of the sections of the group as well as families all came together for a Group Campfire.
Our campfire chief Turtle put on a show with some amazing magic fire lighting abilities and there were some old campfire songs and we learnt some new ones.
It was a great night and it was great that so many families came to share this campfire with us.

On the weekend of 18th – 20th of May the Bibra Lake Cub scouts travelled to Nanga Bush Camp to attend the Ned Kelly district camp with groups from all around the Beeliar and Melville district including Willagee Kardinya and Kwinana. The cubs were very excited and there were so many different activities they got to participate in including whip cracking and gold panning.
It was great to see the cubs make many new friends and work together in their patrols which were named after famous Ned Kelly towns.
It was a fun, cold and exhausting camp and I’m sure many of the cubs slept on their
way home. It was a great camp and I’m looking forward to more district activities to come.
On Saturday 5th May the Bibra Lake Joey Scouts travelled to Australind to attend the Joey Leap annual branch event with approximately 250 other Joey Scouts from WA.
The Joeys were excited and there were many activities to choose from including a small and larger rock climbing wall, rope bridge, bouncy castle, fire brigade, police, giant games, craft stalls, Rover 100 year/colour pancakes, push carts, face painting and probably more that we didn’t even get to.
It was great seeing the Joeys being unsure and scared of rock climbing and conquering their fears, setting personal goals and getting further than they expected, and some reaching the top.
Another favourite of our Joeys was the rope bridge
It was a fun and exhausting day and I am sure many Joey’s slept on the way back home from Australind.
It was a great day and looking forward to next year’s Joey Leap.
