Kiwi Woggle is back…

Over the last few months, we’ve been in a holding pattern as we await more details on how our annual camp will proceed as the world begins to emerge from isolation.

The Good News: Kiwi Woggle will now be held from the 2nd to the 5th of October 2020 at Wyper Park Bundaberg.

This weekend has been chosen as it is the Queen’s Birthday long weekend and the end of the September school holidays. We hope that your patrol is as eager as we are to get back to camping and this long weekend allows us to really make the most of what had been planned for Easter.

We will of course continue to follow any and all guidelines from Branch on things like social distancing, hygiene and numbers allowed to gather. However, we are hopeful that by the time of this camp, even stage 3 of the road map for the resumption of face to face scouting will have relaxed further, enabling more participation and less restrictions upon patrols and camp organisers.

Please reach out to the organising committee if you have any questions or concerns. We look forward to welcoming you to #Cook250 Kiwi Woggle at Wyper Park in October.

 

Kiwi Woggle Postponed

No doubt you’ve all been hearing a lot about the Corona Virus and the way public health messages are constantly changing. Here at Kiwi Woggle HQ in Bundaberg; we’ve been paying very close attention. Whilst we were hoping we might still be going ahead at Easter and provide an outlet for our youth members to get outdoors and spend a few days camping; we realise now that isn’t possible.

In accordance with the advice from the Chief Commissioner of Scouts QLD, especially his advice that wherever possible limit closely confined sleeping on camps through separation using individual tents or through sleeping under flies, we have decided to postpone. Please don’t misunderstand though: we are not cancelling! Our local team have discussed this and we are working with our regional and district commissioners, as well as Branch and the Chief to lock in a new date.

In the meantime, please stay tuned to our Facebook page and also to this website as we will keep you informed and discuss the finer points of registration with individual delegates or groups. If you have any more questions, contact us via email: kiwiwoggle2020@gmail.com

Who Created this Website

This website was created by a few adults, most of whom used to be Scouts… and most of whom attended Kiwi Woggle Scout Camps in the past!

Jay Daniells (Mullet) owns Green Valley Digital and You Beaut Websites. He and team members James Hill and Jay Donaldson created the website. Info about them can be found here. Green Valley Digital also provided the website hosting.

Matt Gees and Maurie Wilson (Finch) also worked on the website.

Scouts Queensland provided the online registration system using their Scouts Queensland Event Registration System

We have all contributed to it! It was very much a combined effort! 🙂

Jay Daniells also designed the logo, print materials, the official camp badge and did the photoshoot to then select a photo to use in the logo. Jay and Matt setup the Facebook page.

A thank you goes out to our Scouts who took part in the photoshoot. A special thank you also goes to their parents.

Some of the text in this website was extracted from past Kiwi Woggle websites. We thank those who wrote this text. We have also added our own text too.

The Countdown is On!

With schools back from summer break and Scout Groups resuming; the countdown to Kiwi Woggle is well and truly kicking into overdrive.

Since planning for this event began back in March 2018, Bundaberg District Scouts have been meeting regularly to ensure that this Easter experience is one that will stay with all of our Scouts and their Leaders (and hopefully give you plenty to yarn about around the campfire at future Scout camps).

Challenge Valley, Abseiling, Luxembourg, Canoeing up the beautiful Burnett River, Hiking, Zany Pioneering, Rope Making, Hurdy Gurdy, and the popular Scouts QLD Climbing Wall are just a small taste of the activities that are planned for Kiwi Woggle 2020.

Outside of these activities, there will be the usual competition camp guidelines to adhere to and a few special items that are being planned for the evening nocturnal hours at Wyper Park.

The Bundaberg District can’t wait to welcome you to our bush retreat on the outskirts of the City of Bundaberg overlooking the Burnett River for #cook250 – Kiwi Woggle 2020.
