This week Slade was invested as a Cub Scout. He started as a Joey Scout earlier this year, and really enjoys his weekly meetings. He also did a Joey camp earlier in the year, which was great fun for him. During the investiture ceremony he had to walk on stilts (with some assistance!) to the Cub leader Rikki. He said his promise, and had to remove his Joey shirt, to reveal his Cub shirt underneath,and then receive his badges. All this while still on the stilts!!

She thoroughly enjoyed herself, and I was very proud of my daughter when all three Guide leaders said what a pleasure she was on camp, how she had got involved and handled herself very well.
After helping back up the tent, it was time for Kai's Promise Ceremony, which was at this wonderful setting alongside a dam (in which the girls had gone canoeing earlier in the day). The camp had a Christmas theme, and the three girls were dubbed The Three Wise Women, and the ceremony had a star theme. It was a very special time, and Kai's enthusiasm was especially evident when she read the Guide Promise over and over again in the car all the way back to the Guide Hut afterwards!
