Ponui Island Feb-23

Another successful Ponui Island camp weekend was held from the 17th to 19th February, 2023.  Word had spread of how fantastic the camp was last year and numbers were up from 33 to 54 this year with a number of Venturers and partners joining.

We were very lucky to have John join us as camp chef.

Activities on offer included kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, rod and hand fishing, coastal walking, hiking and kiwi spotting on Saturday night.  They also had free time to read under the trees, play cards, hit and roll, frisbee or just hang out on the tree swing.

We returned on the barge around 4pm on Sunday afternoon. Once again, our captain and host, David Chamberlin, allowed the scouts to jump off the bow ramp and float down the side of the barge to a drag rope and ladder, then climb back up the stern.  You should have seen the smiles on their faces, priceless.

A special thanks to Di for her outstanding organisational skills and John for the fantastic food and to the scouts for making the most of the opportunity on this magical island.
