While at Bonegilla we were able to achieve a few significant things: we organised a folk art exhibition, prepared a Baltic concert for the Minister for Immigration Mr Calwell, and organised a Kūčios.
Scouting became a wonderful way of gathering our children and teaching the principals of respect for nature, our heritage and for each other.
The Australian/Lithuanianscouting movement bases its principles on the worldwide scouting organisation instituted by Sir Baden Powell in 1908.
The mission of Lithuanian scouting is to provide children of Lithuanian descent a framework in which to build character and grow into responsible citizens through the philosophy of scouting.
With a focus on Lithuanian culture, traditions, and language, using physical as well as intellectual activities, scouting has been an integral part of our youth growing into responsible adults.
