at Tung Tsz Scout Centre
( 25-27 December 2003 )
You might be wondering why we
are celebrating our 70th Anniversary when you have read somewhere in
this website that our group was formed in 1946 after the WWII. The fact
is that our founder, Rev. Brother Mario Colleoni P.I.M.E. (1910-1988),
was already a Scout Master of the 16th Hong Kong Group before WWII.
The Scout Association of Hong Kong has acknowledged that 2ndHKG is a
continuation of the 16th Hong Kong Group when all the Scout Groups in
Hong Kong were rearranged after WWII in 1946. Unfortunately, we do not
have any history of the 16th Hong Kong Group which was probably lost
during the war.
Our 70th Anniversary Camp was originally planned for July 2003, due
to the SARS episode, we had postponed the camp to X'mas 2003. It was
a 3 days/2 nights camp at Tung Tsz Scout Centre. 80 Ventures, Scouts
and Cubs plus almost 20 leaders attended the camp. One of the highlights
was the Open Day on Boxing Day (26th Dec), 80 parents and families of
our members joined us for this joyous event. Other highlights included
campfire, sports and games.
Demostration campsite - A demonstration campsite was constructed for
our visitors on the Open Day. As most parents do not have much idea
about camping, the campsite gave a taste of what their children do at
X'mas decoration - In the sprit of X'mas, a "room decoration competition"
and our visitors and leaders each got a vote to decide the best decorated
See how keen the boys and girls were to get a vote!
