Out and about with Scouts

By: Kylie Brettschneider
The Telstra Kids Grant was used to purchase handheld GPS and UHF devices, as well as caving/abseiling helmets.The safety of our Scouts is paramount, and the Telstra Kids Grant has enabled the Scouts to use the most up to date digital technology for navigation and communication while on hikes by foot, bike and canoe.  This enables them to enjoy adventures in the great outdoors with increasing independence and confidence.  Having our own set of helmets for caving and abseiling will continue to reduce the costs of such activities to our Scouts, eliminating the need for us to hire helmets for these adventure camps.  Thank you Telstra!  Our Scouts love their new equipment.
