EMMANUEL Covenant Community’s scout troop scaled new heights on June 14 – to the top of Mt Tibrogargan in the Glasshouse Mountains.
The bunch of enthusiastic scouts, their leaders and parents showed off their rock climbing skills as they scrambled up the mountain.
Assistant scout leader Jenny Agnew said the climb was worth it just for the view when they made it to the top of the mountain.
‘What beautiful weather we had, and what an amazing view it was from the top,’ she said.
‘With a prayer to thank God for the great day and great climb, we all headed back down for sausages.’
The climbing adventure came hot on the heels of a camp held at Girraween National Park during the Easter break, that included an overnight hike.
Emmanuel Scouting is a ministry of the Emmanuel Covenant Community and has been running for more than 11 years.
Ms Agnew said the scout group’s mission was to encourage the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development of young people so they could take their place in society as responsible Christian citizens and as members of Emmanuel Covenant Community, their local Church and national and international communities.
‘And we have a lot of fun doing it,’ she said.
The scout group consists of a joey mob for six to eight year-olds, a cub pack for eight to 10 year-olds, a scout troop for 10-14 year-olds and a venturer unit for 14-18 year-olds.
