Six Foot Track Hike / Old Ford Reserve Camp – Mar 2014

IMG_3282Our latest Group activity was a repeat of a similar popular  activity two years ago in which we combined a Cub Family Camp and a Scout Hike.

The Cub Camp was based at Old Ford Reserve in the Megalong Valley part way along the famous Six Foot Track.  Cub activities included the Six Foot Track Hike, making Sling Shots, Geocaching,  Damper Cooking, Camp Fire with Marshmallows, Bush Tucker Walk, Tree Identification / Animal Tracking, and Badge Work.  Link to Cub Photo Album here.

The Scout Hike commenced at the Explorers Tree outside Katoomba.  The Cubs joined them for the first section of the hike which passed by their Old Ford Reserve Campsite.   The Scouts hiked on a further 8km to Cox’s River, camping overnight before returning to Old Ford Reserve the next day for a late lunch with the Cubs.


The Scouts enjoyed swimming upon arrival and departure in Cox’s River.  Links to Scout Photo’s, Montage, Unlisted Youtube Video and GPS Track (open with Google Earth) here.  And more photo’s courtesy of Chris Grundy here.
