Photo of the Month - July 1997

Summer is here and you should all be outside making the best of the light evenings and the warm sunny weather, so here is a picture to inspire you to get outside for your activities. Garry McGraw from New Zealand has sent in a photo of Ben of Walton Cub Pack, Matamata Scout district, Waikato Area. He is abseiling whilst on camp in New Zealand.

This photo was taken in November last year and it shows the first time Cubs were abseiling at a camp in NZ.

June Photo of the Month

Abseiling at a camp in NZ.

We would like to have a link with a Cub Pack in the UK to swap stories, badges, scarfs and ideas etc. with. Our pack consists mainly of children from dairy farms so we do heaps of outdoor things. We've just had a campfire and the temperature was -3C with a huge frost next morning but we had about 60 there. Great fun! Next we are off mountain biking in a redwood forest not far from here. The forestry company has created kilometres of bike trails and has created some great camp sites so this should be fun.

You can contact Garry McGraw via email at and the Scout Association of New Zealand have their own web site.
