Gadgets have always been one of Catholic High Scout Group's fortes, often built with bamboo and cane. As one of our specialities, we take serious pride in our gadgets, with careful thought and calculations into each and every knot. In our spirit of excellence, we not only scrutinise each design element, but also ensure that every knot is tied tightly and perfectly, so as to ensure the gadgets meets operational requirements.
Gadgets serve the needs of our campers and increase the camping standard and standard of living. Gadgets are critical to maintaining team morale as it provides comfort in-camp, keeping the campsite neat and hygienic. One example is the uniform and back rack below - helping to keep the team organised and efficient.
