Scout Troop
Events in 2005:
 


X'mas Camp at Hok Tau Campsite

(24-26 December 2005)

The troop held their Christmas camp at Hok Tau Campsite with 13 scouts attended. The promotion of three members of the scout troop to the venture unit took place during the camp. In addition, 8 sixers from the cub pack joined to have a feel of what they would do when they are promoted to the scout troop.

Hok Tau Campsite is probably one of the busiest campsites in Hong Kong, there were at least 200 people (there were other scout groups too) at Hok Tau Campsite which is about the size of a football field!!


 
 
 

 


Group Holiday Camp at PLK Pak Tam Chung Holiday Camp
( 27-29 August 2005 )

49 cubs, 14 scouts and 3 ventures attended the Group Holiday Camp at PLK Pak Tam Chung Camp during the last few days of the summer holidays. This was probably the only reason for the cubs and scouts to look forward to the end of the summer holidays! This is the first time we have been to this campsite and it was clean, tidy and spacious for us to conduct activities. Unfortunately, due to low tide, we could not enjoy the various water sports offered by the campsite, which we did most look forwarded to. Everyone was sad when they left the camp because of the fun-packed three days (or was it because they have to return to school?!)


 
 
 

 


Troop Camp at Tai Long Wan Campsite, Lantau Island
( 16-17 July 2005 )

15 scouts and 4 ventures attended the Troop Camp at Tai Long Wan Campsite in Lantau Island. It's hard to find campsites near beaches in Hong Kong but Tai Long Wan is one of the few. Although the beach was not suitable for swimming, it provided us with ample space to carry out activities. The scary big big spiders threatened our scouts!!


 
 
 

 


Visit - Ceramic Art and Tea Ware exhibitions
( 7 May 2005 )

To introduce our members to ceramic arts, we moved our meeting to Hong Kong Park which held two very fine cermaic exhibitions during early May.
 
The first exhibition was organised by a group of amateur potters, the theme was "One Creation....All Unity". Our members were asked to interview some of the potters to find out their ideas behind their work.
 
The second exhibition we visited was housed in the Museum of Tea Ware. It was an exhibition for a ceramic competition and the theme was "Tea Ware" of course."

The Troop served as crowd control during Chinese New Year celebrations at the Catholic Catherdral on 20 Feb where lion dance was performed. The Bishop of Hong Kong, Rev. Joseph Zen, was the Guest of Honour at the celebrations.
