Winter Campfire 2018 - 110 years of scouting

1st Kengray paid tribute to 110 years of scouting in Kensington with its annual mid-winter campfire held at Jeppe High School for Boys on Youth Day - 16th June 2018. The drumming spectacular that was so popular last year was back again this year with an awesome interactive drumming session by Paul Boyter’s Harmonics.

The sound created by the drumming was breath-taking to behold!

A huge thank you to everyone involved for making this event the enormous success it was and a special thanks to the drummers from Harmonics and all the scouts - past and present - from around the area who came out to support this momentous milestone.

1st Kengray wins KonTiki 2018

Well done to the scouts, scouters and parents who made KonTiki 2018 a very successful event for our group. 1st Kengray placed first overall – to say this is an awesome achievement is an understatement and doesn’t do justice to the hard work and dedication put in by everyone involved.

KonTiki is the largest annual scouting event in South Africa and to win it is no mean task – it sees troops from around Gauteng building rafts and campsites and competing with one another for the coveted title of overall winner. Huge congratulations go to everyone involved and especially to Jonathan Diesel, the raft captain, and Chris Park, the supporters patrol leader, who, together with our scouters, led the troop to victory. 1st Kengray goes from strength to strength and we are very excited to see what else we can achieve in the future.
