Marines Hut a hit at Scout Jamboree
Keas, cubs, and scouts from Porirua to Levin were all visitors to the Marines Memorial site as part of the Kapiti Coastal Scout Zone’s Jamboree on the Trail - in Queen Elizabeth Park on May 12.
Jamboree on the Trail is an annual day for the World Scout Movement to hike together. The event is always held on the second Saturday of May, and all Scouts, whatever their age and wherever they are in the world are invited to participate.
Several hundred Kapiti groups visited the park, as part of the event and a number of groups took time to visit the Memorial, and the newly restored Marines Hut. It was a great opportunity to showcase our new disability access ramp built by fantastic volunteers from the MenzShed. The ramp also makes viewing of the hut interior much easier for small children. Groups wanting guided tours of the Memorial site and the hut can contact us through this website.
