History

After the sale of the Patumahoe Scout and Guide hall (both organisations had been inactivate for a number of years), Schlaepfer Park Scout Camp was lucky enough to be allocated an $87,000.00 share of the proceeds.
Ray Johnston and Ian Robinson decided to look for a removable building that may suit our plan to have a better building that the Browne Hut that we had. This building was in a sad state and wasn't big enough. Repairs to it didn't seem to be a logical move. 
We visited Atlas Building in Drury where we found a building that fitted our requirements but need quite a bit of work to become what we needed. We decide to have a look at Atlas's yard at Raventhorpe (Between Drury and Bombay) When we pulled up outside the yard we saw a building that looked like it could be suitable. A phone call
