Annual Mudslide Day - February
In February each year, SCOUTS New Zealand celebrates their annual MudSlide Day - and Scout Groups across the country combine plastic with dirt and water to have a whole lot of fun.
Open to communities as a family day, MudSlide Day gives Scout Groups the perfect opportunity to invite their friends to share in the adventure of SCOUTS. The MudSlide is held every year towards the end of February, and is usually the same weekend at Founders Day.
