Mt Keira Scout Camp is managed by Scouts Australia and is part of the South Coast & Tablelands Region. Its primary functions are a Scout camp and a training centre for Scout Leaders.

The camp is also used for bird watching, school groups, youth groups, conferences, weddings and photography.

The camp is closed for a few weeks, this is good news because it give me some uninterrupted time to wander about and have a really good look around, I can investigate the track behind the Glen a bit more and sit in the shade and read the backlog of books about the history of this place. I'll still be posting updates because I can't help myself, if I learn or see something interesting, I share with you guys.
Odin and I will also be tending to some maintenance/cleaning tasks so that when we reopen next year the camp will be more than ready for you all to come visit.
I have been given a USB with old photos on it so I'll also be taking snaps for the before and after photos that we all love.
I've really enjoyed the interactions with you all, we've had some fun together, i've enjoyed you sharing your memories with me about the camp.
Odin and I wish you a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
I wonder what Lyre Birds do on Christmas Day? I'll let you all know.

Last night 1st West Wollongong were in for their annual Christmas breakup and awards night, they arrive en masse and were swimming for quite a while, I think the leaders had to drag them out of the pool for the awards.
We would like to congratulate Josh Newman on achieving his Grey Wolf and Bryce O’Connor who received his Scout Medallion. 1.2.3 WOLF & BRAVOOO

There was another award but I didn't get the photo, John Latham received his 25 year service award. Thats 25 years of being a great leader in Scouting...Outstanding work Jayell.
