Term 4 at Tambo Joeys

The year is done! Hopefully everyone enjoyed it as much as the Tambo Joeys – this term we’ve gone kayaking, boating, hiking, had a sleepover, met the Mayor and so much more.

Merry Christmas to all, and see you in the new year.


Term 3 at Tambo Joeys

Here’s a few photos from Term 3 with our Joeys (6-7 year olds). Some of the things we enjoyed were two campfires, a visit to the SES, and a weekend at the snow.

We’ve recently had four Joeys move up to Cubs so have a few places open for 6-7 year olds. Please let us know if you’ve got friends who are interested.

Tambo Joey’s – Now Hopping


Our mascot, Cookie, takes in the views of Tambourine Bay

1st Tambourine Bay Sea Scouts launched its’ Joey Mob on 7th May. There has been great interest amongst younger siblings of Cubs and Scouts for some time.

Andrew Mosey, Joey Scout Leader, completed his training in record time and is joined by Assistant Joey Leaders Josie Crawford and Chris Crawford – who incidentally are not related!

The mob started with 12 young eager Joeys and is going from strength to strength, with interest spreading like a virus in the local community.

The program offers a mix of activities, games, craft, and lots of fun for our 6 and 7 year old Joeys.

Scout Hike – May 2017


Tambo Sea Horses

Tambo entered two Patrols this year in the popular annual Scout Hike.  Ely, Eleanor, Mia, Maya, Adelaide, Rhys, Harry, Gabe and Luke were well prepared as they set off from Meadowbank Park on Friday Night.

The weather was unusually fine and mild this year and both Patrols reportedly had a great time.  Congratulations to the Olympians who won a Silver Medal.

Some pictures from the weekend can be found here.

Scout Hike Preparation Camp at Tambourine Bay – Apr 2017


The Perfect Cooking Fire

A short overnight camp at the Tambo Hall to help Patrols prepare for Scout Hike.  Lots of great learning:

  • Tent Pitching;
  • Cooking Dinner on a Fire;
  • Menu Planning;
  • Understanding Warm, Waterproof Light-weight Hiking Gear;
  • Navigation; and
  • Strategy.

So easy camping by the hall – camping gear all easily at hand, running water, and a toilet. Combine this with a movie and a night-hike.  Perfect glamping right on the harbour!
